While many parts of the country are heading indoors due to cooler temperatures or even snow, Arizonians are doing just the opposite. Arizona’s beautiful October weather makes it the perfect time to head outdoors and enjoy a walk or run for the Make-A-Wish Arizona Walk for Wishes event. Whether you’re a walker, runner, or you’re just in it for the wish-granting, your attendance and fundraising can help to grant wishes for Arizona kids battling critical illnesses. Sometimes, a wish granted is just what a child needs to feel hope, strength, and joy once again.

Walk To Help Make-A-Wish Arizona Grant Wishes For Local Kids

Make-A-Wish Arizona is celebrating their 10th Annual Walk for Wishes on Sunday, Oct. 27. Don’t miss out on this excellent opportunity to participate in a 5k fun run or walk, or a one mile fun run or walk.  Walkers or runners can choose a pace that they are comfortable with, and participants will be helping to grant wishes for local kids no matter how fast or how slow they go. Register to walk or run as an individual or a team.

While registration is free, participants are strongly encouraged to fundraise for the Walk for Wishes event, which will benefit Make-A-Wish Arizona and help to grant wishes for deserving children. To register as a participant in the 10th Annual Walk for Wishes, please visit the Make-A-Wish event page.

If you are unable to fundraise or attend the walk, you can also choose to donate to another participant’s fundraising efforts. You may also choose to make a general donation to the 10th Annual Walk for Wishes!

Become A Walk Sponsor

If you are looking for another way to make a difference for Arizona kids and to get even further involved in the Walk for Wishes event, consider becoming an event sponsor to help Make-A-Wish Arizona in their fundraising and advertising efforts. With your help, Make-A-Wish Arizona can grant more wishes for local kids. To date, Make-A-Wish Arizona has granted more than 4,300 wishes!

Choose from a Bronze Sponsorship ($3,000), Silver Sponsorship ($5,000), Golf Sponsorship ($10,000), or a 5K Run Sponsorship ($20,000). Your sponsorship makes a huge difference in the life of a child!

Don’t Miss Out On Your Chance To Grant Wishes In Arizona

Be sure to get your family and friends together to walk for wishes in Tempe, Arizona. Check-in goes from 7-8 a.m. and the 5k fun run/walk begins at 8:15, with the one mile fun run/walk starting shortly after at 8:30. You don’t have to be an experienced runner or walker—all you need is the willingness to help Make-A-Wish grant wishes!

If you are unable to attend the Make-A-Wish Arizona Walk For Wishes, but are still looking for a way to help out, you may consider donating a vehicle to Wheels For Wishes. Benefiting Make-A-Wish Arizona, Wheels For Wishes accepts unwanted vehicles and recycles or auctions them off to benefit Make-A-Wish. Earned proceeds from the vehicles are donated to Make-A-Wish Arizona and go toward the granting of wishes.

To donate a vehicle, please fill out our online donation form or call 1-877-431-9474. You won’t regret it! You will love the feeling of knowing that you have helped Make-A-Wish Arizona get one step closer to granting the wish of a deserving child.
