MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — WCCO viewers raised over 85 percent of the total airline miles donated nationwide during Make-A-Wish Foundation’s “Wishes in Flight” drive in April.

According to Make-A-Wish Minnesota’s development director, the organization raised 21 million miles nationally during the drive – and 18 million of those came directly from viewers of WCCO.

Our goal during April’s Accomplish MN drive, which was held on March 25, was to raise 10 million airline miles so kids can visit the destinations of their dreams alongside family members. But by late that evening, we had raised almost 16 million miles.

Make-A-Wish Minnesota needs 75 million airline miles a year to accommodate wishes. Click here to see how you can help.
