Wishes in Flight

The University of San Diego is leading change and changing lives.

This holiday season, in keeping with its Catholic mission, the university is proud to partner with this year’s annual NBC 7 Wishes in Flight telethon to garner airline miles that the Make-A-Wish Foundation uses when granting wishes to children with life-threatening, medical conditions.

During this year’s telethon — which aired on NBC 7 on Friday, Dec. 16 — USD was honored to be part of a “wish sendoff” for Jake, a 17-year-old Helix High School student from Lemon Grove, who received his wish to take a trip with his family to Costa Rica.

USD also had its own special surprise for Jake, live on the air. The surprise wish enhancement was USD’s way to send Jake off on his trip!
