Capitals forward Tom Wilson has had a busy season. In addition to racking up the first 22-goal season of his career, he’s also been bringing hope and joy to critically-ill kids from Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic through his initiative “Forty Three’s Friends”.
Wilson brought 20 kids who are waiting for their wish to be granted by Make-a-Wish, along with their families, to a Capitals home game. He made sure they had a one-of-a-kind VIP experience by providing free tickets for them and their families, giving them a tour of the locker room, and handing out some signed sticks.
As the regular season comes to a close, Forty Three’s twenty new friends wanted to show their appreciation. Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic put together a compilation of these courageous kiddos saying thanks, cheering on the Capitals, and, most importantly, smiling from ear to ear.
