For more than 25 years, Pittsburgh radio station WISH 99.7 FM has donated air time for Make-A-Wish's Light Up A Child's Life® Campaign. The annual campaign is held each year during the month of December to help raise funds in order to grant wishes of special children living with life-threatening medical conditions. The first Light Up A Child's Life Campaign was held in 1989 and raised more than $280,000. This year, the campaign, which also was broadcast in other cities in Pennsylvania and West Virginia, raised funds to fulfill more than 300 wishes! In 2011, the campaign added a webcast to expand its reach online.
