Walk for Wishes

Walk for Wishes


Wishes are waiting. So, we're still walking - virtually!

Walk For Wishes® is a nationwide Make-A-Wish® fundraiser that celebrates the more than 315,000 wishes that have already been granted, while raising funds for future wishes. It's a family-friendly event powered by wish families, volunteers, companies, donors and friends.

How can you help?

1. Register! Sign up today and invite friends, family and colleagues to join your team. Virtual participation is FREE

2. Fundraise. Tell people why you are supporting Make-A-Wish and ask for their support. Make it personal to make it powerful. Be sure to use the address, or link directly to your team page when telling your friends on social media! Don't forget to download the 2020 Virtual Wish Guide for resources and additional information for all walkers!

3. Walk. Wherever you are on Saturday, August 1, we invite you to lace up your shoes and WALK so local children can WISH. See the Make-A-Wish mission come to life and celebrate your fundraising success on Walk Day.
