So much of the country is blanketed by a harsh winter, but at least in Las Vegas the weather in February averages a balmy 62. Perfect weather to get out for a walk or run – and what’s better than benefiting Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada?

On Feb. 1, at Miller’s Ale House Town Square Las Vegas, Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada will partner with Caesars Foundation to present the 13th Annual Walk for Wishes, a walk and 5K run. Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada grants the wishes of children living with critical illnesses, and you can make an impact with Make-A-Wish just by walking in the one mile event or running the 5K race.

There’s Still Time To Register

If you are a Wish Child or Wish Family, you are eligible for up to four free registrations. Please email Ashley Schaus or call her at 702-932-2798. There are several different registration options. You can take part in the event as a VIP, which includes: priority packet pickup, premium t-shirt and meet and greet with Wish Families for $50. Regular registration is $25 for adults, $15 for kids and seniors, whether they run individually or as part of a team. Registration the day of the event is $40. There is also an extra fee for having your race officially timed.

At the event’s website, you can register, donate to a participant, or make a general donation to the walk.

Other Ways To Help Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada

Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada has been trying for more than 25 years to help grant wishes of children with a critical illness. Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada serves one of the fastest growing areas of the country, the southern portion of the state, which encompasses the counties of Clark, Nye, Lincoln and Esmeralda.

When a child gets a wish granted, Make-A-Wish does everything possible to make sure their once-in-a-lifetime wish experience is fun, memorable and very special. Every dollar the chapter brings in helps in their mission to grant as many wishes as possible. You can even help by donating airline miles that help purchase tickets for the Wish Kids and their families to travel.
