Giants pitcher offers Make-A-Wish matching pledge
Matt Cain wants to do his part to help the next Batkid make good
on a dream.
The Giants pitcher and wife, Chelsea, pledged a $50,000 matching
grant and challenged to Make-A-Wish Foundation Greater Bay Area
Executive Director Patricia Wilson. If Wilson can complete her goal
of raising $50,000 by Wednesday night, the Cains will match it.
The couple was inspired – along with a captivated country – by
5-year-old Miles Scott’s whirlwind day last month as his favorite
superhero solving crime in San Francisco. The boy has undergone
Make-A-Wish says Wilson pledged to plunge into San Francisco Bay
this past Saturday if supporters raised $7,500, the typical cost of
a wish. She jumped into the icy water, and had raised more than
$20,000 as of Monday afternoon.
