Make-A-Wish Greater Pennsylvania and West Virginia is giving you three ways to help make dreams come true in September. The Make Wishes Come True 5K Run and Walk, Wine and Wishes and Walk For Wishes are three fun-filled events that all raise funds to make dreams come true for local kids with life-threatening medical conditions.
Whether you live in the Greater Pennsylvania area or West Virginia, one of these events is probably in your neck of the woods. Read on for more details on these events, and check out the Make-A-Wish calendar for all the local events benefiting local kids!
Make Wishes Come True 5K Run And Walk
The Make Wishes Come True 5K Run and Walk is an opportunity to either take a nice walking stroll or a fun-paced 5K run with family and friends for a good cause. Not only is this event fun for you, but it also contributes to making dreams come true!
On Sept. 9, at 8:30 a.m., you can bring your running shoes to Wheeling Heritage Port in Wheeling, W.V. for this fun run or walk. Admission costs $3 for kids, $16 for those who register ahead of time and $20 on race day.
Wine And Wishes
All you need for this fun event is your taste buds! Wine And Wishes combines all the fun of a wine-tasting party with the pure excitement of making dreams come true for local kids! You, your friends and family will have the opportunity to taste local wines, eat delicious hors d’oeuvres, win big in the silent auction and take part in the mystery wine sale.
If you register on or before Sept. 22, tickets only cost $50! Plus, they are even less for your designated driver at $30. Sponsorship packages are also available if you want to go the extra mile to turn your fun experience into dreams coming true! This awesome event takes place on Sept. 28 at the Out Door Country Club (1157 DetWiler Drive, Yourk, Pa. 17404) from 6 to 8 p.m.
Walk For Wishes
Walk For Wishes is more fun with more numbers! Tell your friends, coworkers, company, family and neighbors to join you. Making dreams come true is a walk in the park!
Meet at Hazel Ruby McQuain Park (799 East Brockway Ave., Morgantown, W.V. 26501) on Sept. 20 at 9 a.m. for registration. The walk starts at 10 a.m., and the proceeds will benefit local kids!
An Easy Way To Help
Donating time or money to a fantastic cause like Make-A-Wish isn’t always easy. However, if you have an unwanted vehicle, donating that is easy! You can donate your unwanted vehicle to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish.
Wheels For Wishes is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization accepting vehicle donations to benefit Make-A-Wish! We pick up and tow away that vehicle that you don’t even want for free! Then, to make things even sweeter, you will receive a tax-deductible receipt to use on your 1098-c form during tax season. The sweetest part of all is that you will help local kids with life-threatening medical conditions live their dreams with Make-A-Wish!
All you need to do is call 1-877-431-9474 or fill out an online donation form. Whether you are walking, drinking wine, running or donating a car, you can make a huge difference in the lives of local kids!
