27 Jul Ryan Jury bake sale raises money for Nik’s Wish
ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) — Young volunteers were serving up sweet treats for a good cause Friday at SwedishAmerican Hospital.
The hospital hosted its annual Ryan Jury Center bake sale. Proceeds will benefit Nik’s Wish, a nonprofit chosen by grade-school age volunteers.
Nik’s Wish, named after the Nikolas Ritschel Foundation, provides support and enrichment opportunities for cancer survivors between 18 and 24 years old. Organizers say it tends to be the forgotten age group for cancer survivors.
“My Ryan Jury family has been so supportive of me through last winter and this spring,” says Jennifer Brittain, whose son was helped by Nik’s Wish. “It just warms my heart that they were so excited to give back to this foundation.”
