What is Walk for Wishes?

Powered by wish families, volunteers, companies and friends, Walk For Wishes® is a Make-A-Wish® fundraiser that celebrates the thousands of wishes that have already been granted, while raising funds for future wishes. By participating, you can help bring the life-changing impact of a wish to children battling life-threatening medical conditions in your community.

Team up with your family, friends, community group or co-workers for a fun morning where, together, we make it possible for wishes to come true. Enjoy a peek into the wish experience through our WISH VILLAGE and meet wish families and other supporters inspired by the mission of Make-A-Wish.

Email us with questions about sponsorship opportunities or joining one of our walk planning committees.
