New York Sharks Train as Wish Granters to Make Wishes Come True

NY Sharks
20 members of the all-female New York Sharks football team complete training to become volunteer wish granters for Make-A-Wish Metro New York
The New York Sharks are the first women’s team to make it to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, the first women’s tackle team to play a half-time scrimmage at an NFL game, and the only women’s football team to have a retired jersey on permanent display at the Sports Museum of America. We are more than inspired to welcome their substantial skills and out-sized hearts to the Make-A-Wish team.
The New York Sharks have been a New York City staple for the last fifteen years. The 50+ female football players hail from all five boroughs, Long Island, and surrounding counties in NY and NJ.  They play in Brooklyn at the Aviator Sports and Events Center at Floyd Bennett Field.

We warmly welcome the New York Sharks to our volunteer corps and the Make-A-Wish family!
