Four Ways To Help Make-A-Wish North Texas In April

In April there are many chances to help Make-A-Wish North Texas grant wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. Make-A-Wish North Texas covers a huge portion of the state, but these events take place all over Texas. No matter where you live, hopefully there’s an event close to you.

Walk For Wishes WTX, April 2

The 9th bi-annual Walk For Wishes West Texas is a 5k Fun Walk in Odessa at Parks Legado on Highway 191. Advanced registration is $25 for adults and $20 for children ages 5-11. Day-of registration is $30 for adults, $25 for kids. You can register as an individual or as a team, so if you have a group of family, friends or co-workers, you can form a team and start raising money today!

When you Walk for Wishes, you will feel great about bringing joy and hope to a local child. Wish Kids also attend and they will get so much joy from seeing how many caring, supportive people are there walking for them! If you are unable to attend, you can still sponsor another walker, or make a general donation.

Walk For Wishes DFW, April 9

The 11th annual Walk For Wishes DFW takes place at Reverchon Park in Dallas (3505 Maple Ave.), and is a family-friendly community event. Participating in a Walk For Wishes allows you to personally make a difference in the community you live in. Advanced registration is $25 for adults and $20 for children ages 5-11. Day-of registration is $30 for adults, $25 for kids. Walkers are encouraged to raise $100 and there are incentives available for different levels of fundraising.

Registration begins at 7 a.m., with opening ceremonies at 8:30 a.m. and the walk starting at 9 a.m. Perks for taking part in the walk include: Complimentary food and beverages before and after the walk, live entertainment, a team photo opportunity; and a Kids Zone that includes face painting, games, bounce house and more!

Walkers can register as teams, so if you have a group of family, friends or co-workers, you can form a team and start raising money today. When you Walk for Wishes, you will feel great about bringing joy and hope to a local child. Wish kids also attend and they will get so much joy from seeing how many caring, supportive people are there walking for them!

Walk For Wishes El Paso, April 9

Walk For Wishes in El Paso takes place at the Fountains of Farah (8889 Gateway West Blvd.), and is a 1-mile Fun Walk. Money raised helps area children who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition.

Registration for the event is $25 for adults and $20 for children ages 5-11. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m., with opening ceremonies at 8:30 a.m. and the walk starting at 9 a.m. Like the Dallas and Odessa walks, you can still sponsor another walker, or make a general donation if you can’t attend.

Enjoy A Magical Evening While Helping To Grant Wishes

The 10th annual Waltzing for Wishes Gala on April 23 at the Overton Hotel and Conference Center in Lubbock (2322 Mac Davis Lane) will feature local “celebrity dancers” who are matched with a professional dance partner. After weeks of dances lessons, each dancer will show off their talents and dazzle the audience with their grace and newfound skills.

For more information on becoming a sponsor, volunteering or attending, please contact Jordan Perry at jperry@ntx.wish.org.

Help Make-A-Wish Make Their Goal

If you can’t attend any of these events, there are other ways to help, including donating a car to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish North Texas. We offer free pick-up and towing of all vehicles, running or not, anywhere in Texas including Fort Worth, Plano, Irving, Garland, Frisco, Waco, Amarillo and Arlington.

We help turn your vehicle into a wish for a local child, and not only do you get a tax deduction, you get the knowledge that you helped a child turn their wish into reality. Call us at 1-877-431-9474 or fill out our easy vehicle donation form.
