Toronto, Ontario -- December 29, 2014 -- CSN and Make-A-Wish Canada teamed up in 2014 to grant the wishes of two young children hoping to experience Disneyland.
"CSN supports Make-A-Wish Canada because as a corporate citizen we have the responsibility to lend a helping hand to those who need it," says CSN's Jenny Trokic.

One of the children, 10-year-old Nigel, wished to be a “roller coaster warrior"—a dream CSN and Make-A-Wish Canada helped make a reality. CSN sponsored Nigel’s wish, sending him and his family to Disneyland, California, where he was able to visit a number of different theme parks and roller coasters.
“I chose this wish because I want to see California, it is going to give us [many] great memories and make us very happy,” Nigel said in a CSN release prior to his trip. “I am most happy about the roller coasters because I love roller coasters and they go very high!”
In addition to Disneyland, the family also visited Knott’s Berry Farm—a multi-attraction theme park in Buena Park, California—as well as Six Flags, where Nigel rode as many roller coasters as he could handle.

Nigel wasn’t the only child who had the time of their life at Disney’s themed attractions, as CSN and Make-A-Wish Canada also granted Chloe’s dream of visiting Disneyland in Florida, where she met Mickey Mouse as well as the Disney princesses, taking home all their autographs.
Chloe, her sister Abbey and their parents took in Disney World’s attractions, including the water slides in Orlando-based Aquatica. They were also able to visit Sea World, where they were given the opportunity to feed the sea lions and dolphins.
“We touched the dolphins!” says Chloe. “I was feeding one and a bird took my fish!”
Trokic says supporting the foundation is important to CSN, and helping children is a cause they take very seriously.
"It is our duty to be a part of continual community enhancements by giving less fortunate children the hope and strength for a brighter future,” she says.
