September 2010

Mike Manatos participated in his 13th consecutive Make-A-Wish Triathlon this year, raising a record $53,400 for the nonprofit, the most every raised in the 27 year history of this annual event. The funds raised will pay for the wishes of seven Wish Kids – children under 18 who are fighting life-threatening illnesses.

This brought Mike’s total amount raised for the foundation to over $433,000, an amount that has granted wishes for over 60 Wish Kids. In addition to competing in this annual event, Mike serves on the Board of Directors of the Make-A-Wish Foundation Mid-Atlantic Chapter.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation is a non-profit organization that fulfills the wishes of children ages 2 to 18 with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
