Rylee + Cru Foundation: Padres Make-A-Wish

This past month, The Rylee + Cru Foundation supported Make-A-Wish San Diego in granting their 5,000th wish to Eric Campos, a six year-old boy battling a brain tumor. For his Wish Day, Eric was able to live his baseball dream as a San Diego Padre.

Along with being signed on as an official San Diego Padre for the day, Eric Campos was able to play catch with his favorite player Fernando Tatis Jr. and meet the Padres mascot the Swinging Friar.

With the Rylee+Cru Foundation named the “Hall of Fame Sponsors”, our founder Kelli Larson, her husband Sam, and president Kevin Murray and wife Sherri were able to be on the field with the Padres during the pre-game ceremony and practice, and sit in the Owner’s Suite alongside Eric.

Kelli shared, “It was amazing to see such joy in the face of this little boy who has been through so much. The way the Padres players and staff interacted with Eric and made him feel so special was really touching to witness. So thankful we were able to help make his wish come true!”
