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.

Thanks to our WCCO viewers and listeners, Tuesday’s Accomplish MN Make-a-Wish drive turned out to be a huge success. Our goal was to raise 10 million airline miles for Make-a-Wish Minnesota through your donations. Those miles would help get kids to their dream destination.
