BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

Make-A-Wish Alabama grants wishes for kids who are facing life-threatening medical conditions.

This year, organizers of the Make-A-Wish Alabama Trailblaze Challenge want to grant more wishes. About 135 kids usually have wishes granted, but they say about 300 are on the waiting list.
