1. President of Legend Advisory Corporation, Michael Quiel is a community advocate who supports causes that benefit children. One organization Michael Quiel contributes to is Make-A-Wish of Arizona. In August 2014, Make-A-Wish of Arizona, in partnership with the new animated film The Boxtrolls and a cable reality-television show, funded the creation of a wheelchair-accessible treehouse for an eight-year old boy with spinal muscular atrophy.

2. The boy, who was diagnosed with the disease at nine months old, was presented with the surprise by Pete Nelson, the host of Animal Planet’s show Treehouse Masters. The Flagstaff treehouse was designed and built by dozens of volunteers and features a kaleidoscope, television-equipped secret room, and bunk beds.

3. Make-A-Wish of Arizona works with families and community partners to fulfill the wishes of children who are battling life-threatening medical conditions. Founded in 1980, its mission is to enrich the lives of children so they can experience hope and joy. In 2014, Make-A-Wish of Arizona granted 330 wishes, a state record.
