Born in India and raised in New York, Tunav learned the value of strength, persistence, and positivity from his hardworking parents. These lessons helped him overcome a battle against leukemia and as a Make-A-Wish® recipient, Tunav’s passion for art and storytelling lead him to an opportunity of a lifetime. In 2016, Tunav was granted his wish to go to sneaker camp in Portland, OR to design his own shoe with the team at Pensole and Adidas.

Tunav says, “While battling leukemia, my wish was to design my own pair of shoes, now I’m able to help other kids in similar circumstances receive their own wish.” 

Now cancer free, Tunav wants to pay it forward and help raise funds to grant nine wishes for Make-A-Wish Hudson Valley. Now through May 3, you can place your bid on his one-of-kind sneaker in a limited run:
