Make-A-Wish Railway Project

How several organizations came together to build a garden railway for a child
teamwork1

1.

Make-A-Wish Northeastern California and Northern Nevada is one of 62 chapters nationwide. Since the foundation began in 1980, more than 250,000 wishes have been granted to children ages 2½ to 18 with life threatening medical conditions. This particular chapter began in 1983 and has granted more than 4,700 wishes. Make-A-Wish organized volunteers from 4 organizations to build a garden railway for 9-year-old David, whose Make-A-Wish dream for an electric train came true in two days of construction. Here volunteers rest within an hour of completion. This story board shows all the steps.
