Walk For Wishes® is a Make-A-Wish® Michigan fundraiser that celebrates the more than 10,000 Michigan 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 Michigan 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 2nd annual Walk For Wishes® - Northern Michigan event on Saturday, June 13, to an online virtual event.
What does this mean to you? On June 13, you and your family can go outside and walk around your neighborhood while celebrating the wishes your fundraising has helped grant.
We hope you will join us virtually for our Walk For Wishes event that morning - wherever you live in Michigan!
We promise to find fun ways to keep you motivated along the way, and we will have inspiring mission moments to share with you before and on Walk day that demonstrate the impact you can have on children in your community.
- Register. 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. Get your family together and walk around your neighborhood or at a park on walk day. Celebrate your fundraising success and the wishes you've helped grant for Michigan kids.

Emily's wish to visit the Lennon's childhood home brought her hope as she battles her illness. In her words, "Make-A-Wish provided me with the stepping stones I needed to leap from my hospital bed into my dreams. We made so many wonderful memories because of Make-A-Wish. What a beautiful way to start fresh."
