Walk Day Details

Lilah Beats Leukemia Team

We Walk so they can Wish.

Walk For Wishes® is a Make-A-Wish® fundraiser that celebrates the 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.

By participating, you can help bring the life-changing impact of a wish to children in your community who are battling critical illnesses.

A wish experience can truly change a child's life, and you can help.
