Granting wishes isn’t an easy job, and that’s why Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina needs your help. There are two opportunities to do so! There are two 2013 Walks for Wishes – Sept. 8 at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, and Sept. 22 at the John Nesbitt Loop at Wrightsville Beach. These 5k walks are a great way to get some exercise while also helping Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina.
The Walk for Wishes is being held on Sunday, Sept. 8. Registration begins at noon and the walk starts at 2 p.m. There is no fee to participate in the event, but adults are encouraged to raise at least $100 each. Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina granted nearly 200 wishes during the last year, but there are many more children waiting to have their wish granted.
Sign-up online for the Cary Walk For Wishes or the Wrightsville Beach Walk For Wishes, create your individual or team page, and start raising money. You can also track your progress toward meeting your individual fundraising goal.
Walk To Grant Wishes
No matter which walk you take part in, you will be honoring Wish families while recognizing the efforts of sponsors, donors, volunteers and medical staff. Walking as a team is a fun and healthy way for friends, families, businesses and other groups to help make a difference in the lives of others. For more information on creating a team or ways to fundraise, e-mail email@example.com (Cary) or firstname.lastname@example.org (Wrightsville Beach).
Even if you can’t make the walk, you can donate by sponsoring a participant in either the Cary or Wrightsville Beach walks. Hundreds of participants including Wish children and their families, Make-A-Wish volunteers and many corporate and individual friends of Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina will be taking part in the excitement of Walk for Wishes.
Other Ways To Contribute
When you Walk for Wishes, you will feel great about bringing joy and hope to a local child. Wish kids also attend and they will get so much joy from seeing how many caring, supportive people are there walking for them.
But, if you can’t make the walk, you can still contribute by donating a vehicle to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina. Either way, you will help grant the wish of a local child in your community.
Wheels For Wishes accepts vehicles in any condition so Make-A-Wish can continue to grant wishes for local kids in your community. Donate a car, truck, SUV, RV, motorcycle, or boat, and help turn your unwanted vehicle into a wish come true.
To donate a vehicle to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish, please call 1-877-431-9474 or fill out our easy vehicle donation form. You won’t regret it!
