Why We Walk

Your Participation in Walk For Wishes® is vital.

A child is diagnosed every 20 minutes with a critical illness. Every one of these kids needs a wish to give them strength and help them heal. When a wish is granted, a child replaces fear with confidence, anxiety with excitement and sadness with optimism.

With the help of people like you, Make-A-Wish creates more than 15,800 life-changing wishes nationwide every year wishes that give children renewed energy and strength, bring families closer together and unite communities.

More kids are waiting for their wishes. Your participation and fundraising through Walk For Wishes will help.

Together, we have the power to transform lives, one wish at a time.
