MHS grad helps make wishes come true

If you could have one wish come true, what would it be?

Former Flower Mound Marcus High School volleyball player Erin Ashley Baker, now a marketing student at Texas State University – San Marcos, is a member of Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE), and serves on the Race for Relief committee.

Wishes of local children were made reality on April 2nd through the success of the 3rd annual Race for Relief hosted by SIFE.

The purpose of Race for Relief is to help raise money to grant wishes throughout the community.

This year SIFE and Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central & South Texas worked together to help grant wishes for local children suffering from life-threatening conditions. The children’s wishes range from meeting their favorite idol, to attending college. More than 220 children will have their wish granted by the foundation. 

Baker was the designer, editor, and contributing writer for the Race for Relief website.

“Our website helped us attain our sponsors and maintain registration for the race while sharing SIFE’s philosophy,” Baker said.

SIFE is a global, non-profit organization that is literally changing the world through highly dedicated student teams on more than 1600 university campuses in 40 countries.

SIFE offers students the opportunity to develop leadership, teamwork, and communication skills through learning, practicing and teaching the principles of free enterprise, thereby improving the standard of living for millions in the process.

SIFE has been helping others achieve their dreams through free enterprise education for more than 25 years. Today, SIFE is the world’s prominent and largest university-based free enterprise organization.

Texas State SIFE is one of the leading collegiate teams within the United States, according to Baker.
