Wish Kids

Day n Nite

Ask Me About My Wish You can take the first step in making wishes come true for local children with critical illnesses by joining Make-A-Wish® Metro New Yorks 5th Annual Walk For Wishes®. Over the past four years Walk For Wishes has raised over $500,000 for kids in our local community. 

 

Fundraising is a vital step towards helping us grant wishes which are more than just a moment in time. Wishes have proven physical and emotional benefits that can give children with critical illnesses a higher chance of survival. They give kids a chance to see the impossible become possible. And when that happens once, they can believe in their ability to live with or overcome their illness. 

  1. Register. Sign up today and invite friends, family and colleagues to join your team.

  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.
