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

  • A special Make-A-Wish supporter recently stopped by our office to show her support by donating $50 for children with critical illnesses! After seeing a sign at a Hamra Enterprises Panera Bread, she knew she had to help. "I dropped in a quarter [that day] because I wanted to make a kid's day." At her birthday party, she and forty of her friends also helped to write cards for children about to go on their wishes. "These kids have it really hard, and they should be treated well and respected." She, in the past, has also donated to Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago and Moriah Congregation. Thank you so much for making wishes come true!
