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.
