The Cowboys have partnered with the Make-A-Wish Foundation of North Texas since 1992 to grant more than 291 wishes of youth from over 41 states, Canada, and Mexico. These "Wish Kids" - youth suffering from a variety of life-threatening illnesses - are invited to tour the team's training facility, watch practice, and meet their favorite players before coming to AT&T Stadium with their families to be the Cowboys VIP guest during a home game. The Cowboys were honored to accept the Chris Greicius Celebrity Award at Make-A-Wish's Evening of Excellence in October 2016.
