Walk With Me. Wish With Me.

Walk For Wishes® is a Make-A-Wish® Michigan fundraiser that celebrates the more than 11,000 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.
