As a current Oklahoma State University student and lover of all things sports, Santiago’s one true wish was to visit the Nike Headquarters in Portland, Oregon. He has loved sports since he was a little boy and when asked what his one, true wish was, it didn’t take long for him to decide that he wanted to visit one of the largest athletic wear brand’s headquarters! Santiago’s wish granting volunteers and the staff at Make-A-Wish Oklahoma wanted to make sure that his wish was not only granted but granted to the fullest!

Santiago flew to Portland with his mom, dad, and brother for a trip they will never forget. They spent a few days exploring all that Portland has to offer but by far the most memorable day was the day that they were given a tour of the Nike Headquarters by the CEO of Make-A-Wish Oregon. The fun of his wish trip doesn’t stop there! Santiago had the opportunity to design his own custom pair of Nike shoes while he was there – he’s sure to wear them just about everywhere he goes! Last but not least, he was taken to the Nike employee store where everything is priced at a significant discount and he was able to do some light shopping with his family.

Santiago and his family were blown away with their trip and will have memories to last a lifetime!
