Congratulations to the Fanatics, who defeated last year's winner Yeah Buds to win the 2014 Wish for Wendy Softball Challenge in a late night thriller. Team fundraising champion once again was General Paton's Third Army. Overall the event raised more than $310,000 in support of the fight against cystic fibrosis. Additional donations are welcomed and can be made by clicking the blue donate button on this page.
Many thanks to the players, sponsors and dozens of volunteers who helped make the event a huge success.
In addition to being the founder of Wish for Wendy, Andy Lipman is a fabulous motivational speaker.

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.
