GAME. SET. MATCH. – Yu-Der’s wish to go to the US Open!
“On behalf of Yu-Der and my family, I would like to thank you so much for everything you have done to make Yu-Der’s wish come true!” - Yulin, Yu-Der’s brother.
Yu-Der, 13 years old with Neuroblastoma wished to go to the 2014 US Open Tennis Championship. Not only did Yu-Der go to the Open, he had the once in a lifetime opportunity to see many of the world’s best tennis players (Djokovic, Petkovic, Williams and Bouchard to name a few!) on the fast surface courts of this grand slam tournament.
The Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day was an unbelievable experience where Yu-Der and his family enjoyed free tennis games, live music and attractions taking place throughout the grounds of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.
Watching the ‘Pros Practice’ at the Louis Armstrong Stadium, walking the tunnels of Arthur Ashe Stadium, attending the Men’s and Women’s first round of play and the BIGGEST surprise ever – meeting Roger Federer.
“Our Mom was star struck and the experience was a wish come true for her as well. We have so many special stories about our trip to New York and can’t wait to share them all with you.
Thank you so much to everyone at Make-A-Wish for making Yu-Der’s wish come true!” Yulin, Yu-Der, Cecilia & Michael.
Special thanks go out to the UBC Bhangra Club for adopting Yu-Der’s wish!
