Her dream was to meet the U.S Women’s Soccer Team.

Thanks to the efforts from Wishes For Warriors and Make-A-Wish, in 2019, she was able to meet her heroes.

“I had my wish the summer of my freshman year of high school in 2019. I thought I was going to help do a fundraiser for Make-A-Wish, but after we got a picture with the big check, they had me turn it around and it said on it ‘Sydney’s Wish’ and they announced that my wish had been granted and that I was leaving for California in two days,” Willig said.
