On July 13, Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana is hosting its first ever nighttime Walk For Wishes. Usually Walk For Wishes events take place on weekend mornings, making this event a little different. Participants can head to Sawyer Point right after work on Thursday evening for the walk.
The Walk For Wishes is a great event for the whole family. The walk itself is a 1 or 3-mile route that’s easy for anyone. In addition to the walk, this event also has beer and wine for sale as well as free food and non-alcoholic beverages. Because the walk takes place in the evening, there will be fun light up necklaces and bracelets for kids to enjoy. At the conclusion of the walk, stick around for the finish line celebration with music, fun and food.
One great thing about the Walk For Wishes is that you will have the chance to meet Wish Families and see the power of wishes firsthand.
On-site registration begins at 5 p.m. and the walk begins at 6:30. The walk activities will wrap up at 9:30 p.m. There is no registration fee to participate, but everyone is still encouraged to help raise money for Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.
Those who raise more than $100 for Make-A-Wish will receive a Walk For Wishes t-shirt to commemorate the event. If you wish to go above the suggested fundraising goal, you can also receive great incentives like a Make-A-Wish baseball hat, blanket or fleece jacket when you reach certain fundraising levels.
