Nik's Wish Auction!
Posted by Rockford Buzz
Posted on October 6, 2021
The Nikolas Ritschel Foundation’s Grammy’s Auction is open! The Nikolas Ritschel Foundation is a foundation that supports young adults battling cancer and raises money to grant them a Nik’s Wish! Since children with cancer age out of the Make-A-Wish program at 18, Nik’s Wish provides a solution for young adults to make memories with friends and family to either celebrate completing treatment or to take a break from continuing treatment. By participating in The Grammy’s Auction, you can help raise money for the 3 wishes they are currently trying to fulfill! From now until October 9th, you can bid on everything from signed sports memorabilia to a variety of different themed baskets or Nik’s Wish merch! So, not only can you support a great cause, but you can also bid on some amazing items! The proceeds go directly to the Nik’s Wish funds for each of the young adults currently battling cancer and if bidding isn’t your thing or you would just rather donate, you can make a direct donation on their Grammy’s Auction page as well! Items will be available to view in person at Nik's Home Run on Friday, October 8th from 4-7 PM and Saturday, Oct 9th from 8 AM to 11 AM. Nik's Home Run is held at Rockford Rivets Stadium, 4503 Interstate Blvd, Loves Park, IL. Unless noted, most items can be shipped for an additional $10 fee.
Here is one of the young adults you will be supporting with your bid/donation!
Meet Hallie fighting Hodgkin's Lymphoma
During my junior year of college, I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma. I was terrified of what was to come. Since then I have gone through six rounds of chemo and have struggled to find a sense of normalcy. Cancer has completely changed my life, but I know that this journey has made me stronger than I ever was before. This fall I will pursue a master's degree in Public Health to do my part in giving back to the health community that has done so much for me.
What Nik's wish are you thinking about and why?
My dream trip would be to Maui. I would love to be able to relax and enjoy myself after all the obstacles I have faced this year.
