Walk For Wishes Benefits Southern Florida Kids

The fifth annual Walk For Wishes is more than just a chance to get out and get exercise – you get to help Make-A-Wish Southern Florida make wishes come true. Last year’s event raised enough money to grant 30 wishes, and the event, in its four year history, has had more than 4,300 men, women and children participate, raising more than $440,000. That’s enough to grant 88 heartfelt wishes to courageous children across Southern Florida.

Walk Or Run As A Team

Being part of a Walk For Wishes team is a fun and healthy way for friends, families, businesses and other groups to help make a difference in the lives of others. Teams, which are made up of at least four participants, are also eligible for special awards for the largest team and the largest fundraiser. Any team that raises $2,500 or more will be named a partner in sponsoring a child’s wish, and any team that raises $5,000 or more will be named as a sponsor of a child’s wish. Both will receive the story of the child’s wish that was sponsored by their team. For more information on creating a team or ways to fundraise with your team, look at the Team Information packet on the event’s website.
