Allstate Hot Chocolate 15k/5k Houston Make-A-Wish

This past weekend, Make-A-Wish recipient, Leroy Baker, and Allstate Hot Chocolate 15k/5k Houston ambassador, Jamie MacDonald, were on Click2Houston to share his excitement about his wish that will be fulfilled in May. The Make-A-Wish Foundation helps grant wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions, and Baker's wish is to go skydiving in Hawaii.

"I think it's really important that the kids know that there's someone out there that cares about them, there's someone out there that wants to be there for them. A wish can put a smile on everyone's faces; just one wish, one wish," Baker said.

MacDonald also elaborated on the benefits of participating in America's sweetest race. The Allstate Hot Chocolate 15k/5k race series is currently in 17 cities across the United States and has partnered with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to help a child in every Hot Chocolate city. The family-friendly race has gained popularity through its quality goodie bag, Finisher medal, and post-race chocolate foundue souvenir cup.
