WWE’s Circle of Champions grants the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses who desire to meet their favorite WWE Superstars and Divas. Since 1982, WWE Superstars have conducted more than 6,000 meet-and-greet sessions with sick children in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Ireland, Spain, Germany, France, Mexico, Australia and New Zealand, to name a few.
WWE grants hundreds of wishes a year to children around the world who have requested meets with our WWE Superstars through various wish organizations including the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Starlight Children’s Foundation, Kids Wish Network, the Rainbow Connection, Sunshine Foundation of Canada and A Wish with Wings in North America and internationally from Dreams Come True, Rays of Sunshine and Willow Foundation. In 2017, WWE granted 200 wishes within the United States and abroad and also entertained 30 wish families at WrestleMania 33.
WWE Superstar John Cena, who serves as a Make-A Wish Ambassador, has granted more than 550 wishes through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Cena is the only celebrity to have ever accomplished this achievement.
