Sparkle Pools, Inc. is proud to have partnered with Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic in granting a boy’s wish.

Six-year-old Max from Cambridge, Maryland was diagnosed with leukemia. When Max found out that he would be receiving a wish from Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic, he wished to have a swimming pool because he and his brother love to swim.

Max was excited to get an above-ground pool because he loves being outside and can enjoy the pool for years to come. A special thank you to Towers Concrete and Waterboy Pool Water Service for their donations and participation in making Max's wish for an above-ground pool become a reality.

After Max’s wish was granted, Sparkle Pools’ Vinnie Arnwine stated, “Never in my life have I been involved in anything as rewarding as making Max’s wish come true. I will never forget the feeling of joy and excitement experienced by Max and his family. It is amazing what Make-A-Wish is able to do for these kids. ”

About Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic

Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic serves children who reside in central and southern Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland and northern Virginia. Founded in 1983, the Mid-Atlantic chapter has granted more than 8,500 wishes in the Mid-Atlantic region since its inception. Wish kids face any number of life-threatening medical conditions such as cancer, pediatric AIDS, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Duchene’s muscular dystrophy, kidney and heart disease.

This year alone, 840 local children are expected to be diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. However, for every wish granted, at least two more local children are waiting. The community has the opportunity to make an impact today by helping Make-A-Wish to reach hundreds of kids whose wishes would go otherwise unanswered this year.
