PHOENIX, Sept. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — In celebration of Make-A-Wish granting its 500,000th wish yesterday, the NBA hosted dozens of Make-A-Wish families as virtual fans last night during Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics. The families spent the game cheering loudly for their favorite teams. They even got a surprise visit from NBA legend Muggsy Bogues as part of the NBA Virtual Fan Experience.

The fan experience was the grand finale to a jam-packed day of activities for 16-year-old Karina’s wish – “to give children a day to forget they’re sick” – the 500,000th global wish for Make-A-Wish. 

The NBA family – including the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics – have helped to grant hundreds of wishes for more than 30 years through NBA Cares. To learn more about the next 500,000 wishes, please visit wish.org.
