Community Hero: Nikki Lyons Lahey and Holly Blanchard
This month we have not one, but TWO Community Heroes: Nikki Lyons Lahey and Holly Blanchard!
Nikki Lyons Lahey is the Director of Community Outreach for Make-A-Wish NH and co-chair of Rafting for Wishes.
Holly Blanchard is the Director of Marketing & Youth Programs at Make-A-Wish NH and the co-chairs of Rafting for Wishes.
With Nikki and Holly's help, Make-A-Wish NH is able to grant wishes for children ages 2.5 to 18 years with degenerative, malignant and progressive illnesses. Each year they grant 85-90 wishes, and this year they have already reached 90!
Both Nikki and Holly took over the Rafting For Wishes event just two years ago. In their first year, they raised over $140,000 and this year they raised $202,000. Both years surpassing their goal!
