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.
The health and safety of our Make-A-Wish Greater Virginia family, including our wish families, supporters, volunteers, event participants and employees, is our priority.
Due to COVID-19, we have made the decision to move our Walk For Wishes® to a virtual event. We encourage you and your family to go outside and walk around your neighborhood while celebrating the wishes your fundraising has helped grant. Please stay tuned for more information on an exciting virtual program we will stream on social media!
While you’re walking, take photos and video to share on social and include #WalkForWishesVA. If you have a walk t-shirt from a previous year, put it on so we can see that in your photos! You may see us share it on our Make-A-Wish Greater Virginia account!
- Register as a Virtual Walker. Sign up today and invite friends, family and colleagues to join your team.
- Fundraise. Tell people why you are supporting Make-A-Wish and ask for their support. Make it personal to make it powerful.
- Walk. See the Make-A-Wish mission come to life and celebrate your fundraising success on Walk Day. Get your family together and walk around your neighborhood or at a park!
We hope that you will join us virtually for our Walk For Wishes event – wherever you live in Virginia!
