2017 is off to a bang as we received a $117,000 match from the Zucker Family Foundation to commemorate our 17th year! In 16 years, Wish for Wendy has raised over $2.7 million. This year, our goal is to top the $3,000,000 mark. With your support, we can get there. After all, a majority of you are part of the 17th team that helps make us successful.
* All contributions to the Wish for Wendy Softball Challenge received up to or on 12/31/16 will be eligible for this 1:1 match. Donations received in excess of the matching goal of $117,000 will be credited to the Wish for Wendy event and would be used to support the mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Wendy Lipman, namesake of the Wish for Wendy Softball Challenge, lived only 16 days, yet every year for 16 years family, friends and supports have gathered to honor her by raising money to help find a cure for cystic fibrosis, the genetic disease that took her life.
16 teams will yet again battle for the 2017 championship both on the field and off of it, cheered on by 16 young CF Ambassadors from around Georgia. Who will win on the field? More importantly, who will win off of it?

Honoring Wendy's Memory
Wendy Carol Lipman was born December 18, 1970 and passed away January 2, 1971. She died from complications of cystic fibrosis. Back then, there weren't many treatments for cystic fibrosis. Thanks to events like A Wish for Wendy, donations are leading to treatments and are moving us even closer to a cure. The Wish for Wendy Softball Challenge is dedicated to the memory of the sister of founder Andy Lipman, and our wish for Wendy is that people with cystic fibrosis no longer have to struggle with this disease.
