Event company MAS Presents will open up their hip hop dance network to help raise much-needed funds for children and young people with life-threatening medical conditions by organising a gold-coin collection for Make-A-Wish® Australia during the World Supremacy Battlegrounds (WSB) on November 30-December 1.
One thousand hiphop dancers, including Philippine champion Boyz Unlimited, AGT finalists Kookies N Kream and Justice Crew members, will be dancing in support of Make-A-Wish® Australia. Demand has been overwhelming, with over 500 wishes still waiting to be granted.
WSB executive director Marco Selorio said, “We have the opportunity to help children through dance. Our hiphop dance network is so extensive, we can use the World Supremacy Battlegrounds festival as a platform to provide awareness and raise money for these kids. We believe that we can make a big difference.”
Make-A-Wish® Australia has granted over 7,000 wishes to medically eligible children between the ages of three and 18 since 1985. Without any ongoing government funding, the non-profit organization has relied upon generous community and business support to continue their wish granting work. Make-A-Wish® wishes have been found to have a lasting impact and capable of making a life-changing difference.
- 97% of families surveyed observed a noticeable improvement in their child’s mental and emotional health after the granting of a wish
- 75% of children experienced improvements in physical health
- 92% of parents affirmed a reduction in anxiety and fear among the wish child’s siblings
- 93% of parents felt an increased sense of empowerment and improved ability to cope with their child’s illness and situation
The World Supremacy Battlegrounds will be held at the Sydney Olympic Park Sports Centre on November 30-December 1. For more information, visit www.worldsupremacybattlegrounds.com
