This September, lace up your favorite running shoes and get ready for two great Walk For Wishes events benefiting Make-A-Wish Wisconsin. Don’t miss the Appleton Walk For Wishes event taking place on Sept. 12, and the Madison Walk For Wishes event taking place on Sept. 20. Both events are great forms of exercise for the entire family and they help to celebrate Make-A-Wish Wisconsin!
Walk In Appleton
If you live near Appleton, grab your group of friends, family, or co-workers and head on over to the Thrivent Financial campus for a 5K, one-mile walk or run, and Kid’s Dash.

Donate Your Car
When you participate in a Walk For Wishes event, you have the opportunity to make wishes come true for kids in your community. Fundraise for Make-A-Wish Wisconsin and help to grant wishes for kids living in Milwaukee, Green Bay, Madison, or Kenosha.
If you can’t attend either Walk For Wishes event, you can still help to make wishes come true for Wisconsin kids battling life-threatening medical conditions. Donate a car, truck, boat, motorcycle, or camper and turn your vehicle into a wish for a local child. Wheels For Wishes accepts vehicle donations on behalf of Make-A-Wish, and donors also receive a great tax deduction. Plus, free pick up or towing is also provided!
Donate your car today and make a difference in your community. Simply call 1-877-431-9474 or complete our online vehicle donation form. Both methods only take a moment of your time, but can be just what a child needs to feel hope, strength, and joy once again!
