Boiler-Maker-Wish is a program at Purdue University that was created and run by student-athletes. The mission of Boiler-Maker-Wish is to put a smile on the face of a child or adult facing physical adversity or a life-threatening illness or disability. The goal of our program is to reach out to Boilermaker fans not just in the Lafayette/West Lafayette communities, but also throughout the state of Indiana. We believe in giving back to our biggest fans who mean the most to us!
