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.

Latest Status Update

  • Not every child gets to spend the holidays at home. Jaysen, having been diagnosed with a brain tumor, spends large amounts of time at the hospital undergoing difficult treatment. After being referred for a wish at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, Jaysen has decided to escape to the sunny beaches of Hawaii when he is granted his wish in the coming months. Hope has propelled Jaysen to maintain a positive attitude, and studies have shown that wishes positively impact children's physical health. Learn more on how you can help to give them hope by visiting bit.ly/GiveThemHopeMAW so that Jaysen's wish can come true.
