Benefiting Make-A-Wish® Connecticut

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.

We're excited that this year's Walk for Wishes will be in person at our new Wishing Place in Trumbull. Out of safety precautions for our wish families and walkers, we'll be offering one-hour time slots between 8:00 a.m. and 12 noon. Walkers will be registered in their vehicles and then begin their Walk Day experience in staggered small groups (masks and social distancing required). 

Prefer to virtually participate and walk at a location of your choice instead? We have an opportunity to be a Virtual Walker again this year while still taking advantage of the exciting fundraising incentives!

  1. Register. Registration is now CLOSED for 2021. Please contact agoodman@ct.wish.org ASAP if you are interested in registering. NO on-site registration will be permitted this year. 
  2. Fundraise. Tell people why you are supporting Make-A-Wish and ask for their support. Make it personal to make it powerful.
  3. Walk. See the Make-A-Wish mission come to life and celebrate your fundraising success on Walk Day.
