This Sunday, the ESPN series “My Wish” returns to make grown men and women weep. The series, which is partnered with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, brings ailing children together with their sports idols for a day that’s a dream come true for them. So, basically it’s a guaranteed tearjerker.

This season of the critically lauded show will feature stars such as USA soccer great Landon Donovan and Broncos QB Tim Tebow as they meet with their special fans. Donovan, for example, will meet with Brendan Galanaugh, a 7-year-old leukemia patient who gets his own locker between Donovan’s and David Beckham‘s in the LA Galaxy locker room with a personalized jersey, and plays a shoot-out with Donovan as well. See? I’m already crying.

Other wishes include a fan managing the Minnesota Twins with Ron Gardenhire, and a girl from New York who learns to surf with Bethany Hamilton in Hawaii.

The series airs during “Sportscenter” beginning this Sunday, July 17. The interstitials will air over the next few days after that, ending on Wednesday, July 20.
