Starlight Great Escapes® Wishes

“Thank you for an incredible family experience. We laughed, bonded, and just had so much fun. It was exactly what this family needed; a no stress, family fun adventure that made our hearts soar, and our bond stronger.” – Martha, mom of Starlight teen, Jonah, who lives with CHARGE syndrome

It’s easy for a child to feel left out of the fun when their illness leads to missed school days, play dates, and friendships. Starlight Great Escapes® Wishes bring families together to help make up for some lost time by creating fun-filled events for new memories and new friendships. These events include driving in exotic cars, movie screenings, harbour cruises, adapted skiing, holiday parties, sleepovers, and more! After a day spent with people who all truly understand one another, sick children are sure to go home with a renewed sense of strength and hope – and even some new friends!

Designed for kids of all ages, illnesses, and abilities, we’re making sure no one is left out of the adventures. Starlight families and children who meet one another through these events have gone on to make lasting connections, friendships, and support systems for life!
