Get your tennis shoes on so you can walk for wishes this weekend! Saturday and Sunday, September 29 and September 30 gives you a chance to walk for wishes! Join in on the 3.7 mile South Jersey Walk or the 3 mile Central Jersey Walk to benefit Make-A-Wish New Jersey. Now is your chance to help “Wish Kids” in your community (along with your car donation, of course)! Head over to Samuel & Josephine Plumeri Wishing Place on either Saturday or Sunday and help to make a child in South or Central Jersey’s wish come true!
The event is both fun and full of magic! Your participation will benefit Make-A-Wish New Jersey and will help to grant the wish of a child in New Jersey. Plus, “Wish Kids” and all kids under the age of 4 walk for free! Registration is $25 for adults 18 and under and $10 for all walkers from the ages of 5 to 17. Anyone interested should act fast since each walker is encouraged to raise $100 prior to registration and will receive a unique event t-shirt, but walkers must register online prior to walk day in order to receive their t-shirt.
Please visit the Walk For Wishes web site for more information regarding the walks in South and Central Jersey on September 29th and 30th! The Walk is something you will have a blast participating in and you will also be granting the wish of a child at the same time, so it’s truly a win-win for all.
If you don’t have enough time to raise money before the Walks on September 29th or September 30th; don’t fret because there will be a North Jersey Walk & 5K held on October 13th as well as a Jersey Shore 3 mile Walk on Sunday, October 21st! The Walks will benefit Make-A-Wish North New Jersey and Jersey Shore! The North Jersey event is held at Liberty State Park in Jersey City, and will allow walkers to gaze at beautiful views of the State of Liberty and the New York City skyline! The Jersey Shore Walk will be held at Great Lawn BeachFront North and walkers will get to walk the Boardwalk and back!
The North Jersey Walk on October 13th requires walkers to register online by October 8th. Both Walks include a $25 registration fee for walkers 18 and older and $10 for walkers from 5 to 17. Children ages 4 years and under walk free, as well as all “Wish Kids”! Similarly to the Walks for Wishes on September 29th and September 30th, walkers are asked to raise $100 in order to receive their event t-shirt. For more information visit the sites for the North Jersey Walk & 5K and the Jersey Shore Walk web sites.
