Roman Reigns receives the Make-A-Wish Chris Greicius Celebrity Award

WWE Universal champion Roman Reigns is one of the handful of individuals to receive the Make-A-Wish Foundation Chris Greicius Celebrity Award this year for playing a pivotal role in furthering the Make-A-Wish mission.

Apart from Reigns, Make-A-Wish America gave the award to JoJo Siwa, Night, Patrick Mahomes, Seán McLoughlin, Shawn Mendes, the Texas Rangers and T.J. Oshie.

“These individuals and organizations provided their time, talent, and significant influence to grant wishes and drive fundraising results for the world’s largest wish granting organization, allowing more children to experience wishes that can help them deal with and overcome their critical illness,” Make-A-Wish said in a statement.

The Chris Greicius Celebrity Award, now in its 31st year of existence, is named after Chris Greicius, the 7-year-old boy whose wish to be a police officer inspired the creation of Make-A-Wish in 1980. Since then, Make-A-Wish has gone on to grant more than 500,000 wishes worldwide thanks to the generosity of everyday people and celebrities alike.

WWE plays an integral part in Make-A-Wish plans and John Cena currently holds the record of granting the most amount of wishes ever.
