In honor of our anniversary, TODAY Show hosts Jenna Bush-Hager and Meredith Vieira ascended 2,500 steps to the top of New York’s hottest attraction to raise awareness and funds.
Along the way they met Make-A-Wish kids and families, volunteers, community supporters, donors, corporate sponsors, board members and staff, who cheered them on as they climbed.
Two generous corporate partners were there to join in the celebration. Avis presented a check for a $10,000 donation and American Airlines donated 2.5 million Advantage Miles to enable families to embark on their wish trips.
When Jenna and Meredith reached the top, Hudson Yards rewarded their effort by presenting Make-A-Wish with a $25,000 donation.
In total, the event raised $35,000, 2.5 million air miles and the spirits of everyone involved.
