TAMPA – Corporations and celebrities will be coming together to challenge mind and body in Kids Wish Network’s sold-out Team Wish Challenge II charity benefit, held February 23, at USF’s Riverfront Park. Corporate sponsors, local firefighters and law enforcement will strategize team-building techniques as they compete physically and emotionally in activities like rock climbing, crazy corporate canoeing and the high ropes course. The fundraiser will benefit Kids Wish Network’s Guardian Angel fund, of which 100% of the net proceeds will go directly toward making even more dreams come true for children with life threatening illnesses.
Energy will be high as the team spirit of the Tampa Bay Buccaneer Cheerleaders kick-off the opening ceremonies, immediately followed by “The Challenges”. Some of the Celebrity team captains include Aaron Stecker and Todd Yoder of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, local TV and radio personalities Jack Harris and Dick Crippen, Pinellas County Commissioner Susan Latvala and Oldsmar Mayor Jerry Beverland. These and other surprise celebrities will offer their support by cheering competing teams to victory. Participants also will experience the magic a fulfilled dream creates, when a “Wish Child” is presented with his special wish request.
