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.
