The Worldwide Leader In Sports' umbrella of content spreads quite large, but in my opinion, the "My Wish" segment is the best thing ESPN does. 

If you've never seen the segment, ESPN, in partnership with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, grants a child with a various illness their sports dream. They make it possible for a child to spend a day with their favorite athlete, to play catch in their team's MLB ballpark, to act as if they were a member of an NFL team. 

Today, Michigan football played host to ESPN's "My Wish," allowing a boy named Stephen, diagnosed with leukemia, and his two brothers to spend the day with quarterback Devin Gardner, Brady Hoke, and the Wolverines' football program.
