Be a SUPERHERO for local children with Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic



Superheroes of all ages are invited to join Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic at our 2019 Walk For Wishes® Washington, DC. 

Use your superpowers to join local wish families, community supporters and volunteers and help change the lives of local children battling critical illnesses. In addition to the family-friendly walk itself, attendees will enjoy music, carnival games, delicious food, face painting and the chance to hear firsthand from wish kids about the power of a wish experience. REGISTRATION IS FREE!

We rely on superheroes like you to help us close the gap between the kids waiting for a wish and those who are able to receive one.

Walkers can fundraise leading up to Walk For Wishes then join wish children, families and other enthusiastic supporters of our mission on the day of the event! Make your walk more meaningful by forming a team of your family, friends, colleagues or community group.

*Raise $25 or more and receive a Walk For Wishes t-shirt!
