WWE is largely into helping out the community, especially when it comes to their younger fans, they try to do everything possible to make them happy!
John Cena recently just celebrated his 500th Make-A-Wish when he made a visit with Rocco, an 8 year old from Queens, NY who’s battling leukemia. Rocco had a wish come true as he got the chance to hang out with his favorite superstar John Cena.
John Cena is the only celebrity that has granted so many wishes. On Aug. 21st Make-A-Wish and WWE took the time to acknowledge Cena whiel hosting a party for him Attendees included Make-A-Wish America President and CEO David Williams, as well as WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon, WWE Divas The Bella Twins (Nikki and Brie), WWE Superstar Sheamus, wish kids and their families, and the guest of honor John Cena. During this event, WWE announced an multi-year, million dollar commitment to Make-A-Wish.
John Cena always goes above and beyond to support his fans and Make-A-Wish. Personally he has donated more than 6 million airline miles which go towards wishes for travel. Cena has also hosted parties for Wish Kids at Wrestlemania, and he’s served as a Wish Ambassador at speaking events.
“Never Give Up” which is John Cenas mantra, is an inspiration for fans, but especially for Wish Kids who are reminded they can stay strong and push through the difficult times.
“There is no more humbling experience than a child who could ask for anything in the world asking to meet me,” said WWE Superstar John Cena. “I have faced some of the toughest Superstars in WWE history and I’ve never encountered more bravery or toughness than I see in each wish kid that I meet. It is inspiring to see the impact that granting wishes can have and I look forward to granting 500 more.”
WWE has been involved with Make-A-Wish since the early 80s. Since 2001 more than 45 Superstars and Divas have individually been requested.
