  • And that’s a wrap! Thanks for tuning in for the 14th season of #MyWish on ESPN’s SportsCenter to watch as athletes transformed the lives of wish kids. When children with critical illnesses meet their favorite athletes, they see the impossible as possible. They are inspired to feel stronger and more confident, because those they deeply admire bring them hope and encouragement at a time when they need it most – and this season showed just that.
