Dear Loyal Supporters,

Make-A-Wish® North Texas is saddened to announce the annual Wish 100 Bicycle Rally has been officially cancelled. Through this event, we have made many life-long friends and gained invaluable volunteers, donors and corporate sponsors. We cannot thank our volunteers and participants enough for making this event possible. From the rest stop volunteers and everyone who worked during the wee hours of the morning to get everything ready, to those who cheered at the start/finish line, your dedication will always be cherished. A special thank you goes out to the rider community – each of you who came out and rode and fundraised to help grant even more wishes right here in our communities are, and will always be, beloved! We are also forever grateful to our partners from McKinney Velo Cycling Club and Richardson Bike Mart who helped us map our route each year, and went above and beyond to make sure the logistics of the ride were coordinated to the highest degree of cycling standards.

Each unforgettable Wish 100 finished smoothly and safely thanks to the City of McKinney, McKinney Police Department and the Collin County Sherriff’s Department. Each year, you supported this event with numerous officers directing our riders and always lended a helping hand whenever and wherever we needed it. Thank you for your hard work each and every day on the job and keeping us safe!

A big Make-A-Wish® thank you also goes out to our friends at TUPPS Brewery who generously donated their beautiful space each year for the Rally. La Cour Event Venue also allowed us to use their beautiful space for our Ink Party year over year and we thank you. Our foundation, wish families and cyclists always had an amazing experience with both venues and we are deeply thankful for the unforgettable memories!

Wishes come true because of communities rallying behind local kids battling critical illnesses. Wish 100 was truly a community effort, and though we are sad to see this event go, we are excited for the upcoming ventures that will help us ensure every eligible child has a wish to count on. We hope to see you soon at the 4th Annual Delicious Wishes Collin County event on Thursday, August 23rd at Verona Villa in Frisco.

Once again, thank you for your continued support of Make-A-Wish North Texas and your generous support throughout Wish 100 the past nine years. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Sincerely, Your Make-A-Wish North Texas family
