Grant Wishes At The 12th Annual 5K Run For A Wish And One Mile Fun Walk

Posted in Donate Car News, Monday, January 28, 2013

Get your tennis shoes ready because you can run to grant wishes on Saturday, February 2nd at Town Square Las Vegas! Whether you’re a runner or not, you can help grant wishes at the 12th Annual 5K Run For A Wish And One Mile Fun Walk, and you will benefit your local Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada.

Aside from car donation to Wheels For Wishes, running or walking for wishes is a huge way to give back to the community you live in. You can help to grant wishes for local kids in your own community just by registering as a team or an individual and participating in the 5K Run For A Wish or the One Mile Fun Walk.

Run For Wishes

Whether you run the 5K or choose to walk the mile, you will help grant wishes for kids with life-threatening medical conditions right here in Southern Nevada.

Participants can register as a team or as an individual so there is still time to gather your team together and get ready for the 5K Run For A Wish and One Mile Fun Walk. Proceeds from registration fees will benefit your local Make-A-With Southern Nevada and help to grant wishes for local kids.

If you’re taking on the 5K as a team, prices are $20 for adults ages 13-59 and $15 for children ages 4-12. Children under the ages of 3 are free. Registration fees are $15 for runners over the age of 60.

If you’re taking on the run as an individual runner, prices are $25 for adults, $15 for children, and $15 for runners over the age of 60.

If running isn’t your ideal way to grant wishes, then you can still make wishes come true when you participate in the One Mile Fun Walk. You’re still getting exercise and helping to grant wishes for local kids! Fees are $20 for adults, $15 for children and $15 for walkers over the age of 60. Register to walk or run today!

If you are unable to register before the event, please arrive early on the day of the run to register. You will also be able to pick up your special participant T-shirt.
