During its 2016 Celebration event this week, health and wellness company Isagenix International raised more than $100,000 in support of charitable partner Make-A-Wish.
Associates who traveled to Las Vegas for Celebration experienced firsthand the work of Make-A-Wish, which grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. In what has become a tradition for the company, Isagenix featured one wish reveal live from stage, while raising funds for the nonprofit throughout the five-day event.
This year’s recipient was Jordyn, a 16-year-old diagnosed with a rare form of liver cancer. The teen’s longtime wish to travel to London and take in its culture and history was granted before an audience of more than 14,000. It is one of 580 wishes Isagenix has helped to grant through its partnership with Make-A-Wish.
“Isagenix customers and employees remain committed to positively impacting and improving world health through our support of Make-A-Wish, to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy,” said Travis Garza, Isagenix Chief Sales and Marketing Officer.
The Arizona company has raised more than $5 million for Make-A-Wish since partnering with the charity in 2012. In 2013, Isagenix received Make-A-Wish America’s prestigious Cause Champion Award for its outstanding contributions.
