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 2018 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.
