Keagan's Wish Granters plan an epic luau!
It didn't take long for Keagan to realize his wish to go to Maui was coming true. When he walked into a luau-themed party planned by his wish granting assistant team at Red Deer's Heritage Ranch, he felt speechless and excited. "I think it's amazing that all these people came for me, to support me," he said.

17-years-old and living with a brain tumour, Keagan has spent this year undergoing surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Normally he loves being active and travelling, and his desire to zip line, surf and swim meant Keagan's one true wish was a trip to Maui. "I want to scuba dive, go to a luau," he noted.

"I'm so excited," said Keagan's mom, Shannon. "Just seeing his dream come true is a dream come true for me." Keagan and his family head to Maui this month.

Rope For Hope raises over $105,000!
On July 10, dozens of participants bravely rappelled down 23 storeys of the Coast Edmonton Plaza in our 6th annual Rope For Hope . Together we raised more than $105,000 for wishes! Many were nervous (and some were costumed!) but everyone managed to be brave like our wish kids are every day.

We're going to do it one more time: Rope For Hope Red Deer takes place on July 20 at Stantec Executive Place.
