Whether you live in the St. Louis area in the eastern part of Missouri, or in the Kansas City area in the western part of the state, you can have a chance to help kids grant wishes. On April 9, you can take part in the Walk For Wishes in Kansas City, or join the April 16 event in St. Louis.
Two Amazing Chances To Grant Wishes
When you take part in a Walk For Wishes, you help to grant wishes for Missouri kids. You may even see several amazing Wish Kids at the walk! Walk & Run for Wishes events are fun for the whole family. Get your family and friends together and walk or run for Missouri Wish Kids.
The Kansas City event takes place at Sporting Park (1 Sporting Way, Kansas City) and the St. Louis event is at the Upper Muny Lot at Forest Park (1 Theatre Dr.). Each event offers both a competitive 5K run and a 1-mile family fun walk. These amazing events will go toward granting the wishes of over 48 local Wish Kids! Registration begins at 7:30 a.m., and the 5k run begins at 9 a.m. with the 1-mile walk beginning immediately after. In addition to walking for wishes, guests will enjoy food, carnival games, and music.
The registration fee for the 5K run is $25, but there is no fee to register for the walk. Participants are also strongly encouraged to both donate and motivate others to do so as well. Earned proceeds help to grant wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions. Register for the Kansas City event or the St. Louis event today and begin fundraising. You can also sponsor a participant, even if you are unable to make a Walk for Wishes event, and you can consider making a general donation to Make-A-Wish Missouri.
Donate A Car to Help Make-A-Wish Missouri
If you can’t attend either Walk for Wishes event, maybe you have a vehicle you no longer need. Donate your car to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish Missouri. Your vehicle donation will be recycled or auctioned off and the earned proceeds will help to grant the wish of a local child in your community.
To donate a vehicle, please call 1-877-431-9474 or fill out our car donation form. Your donation will grant wishes for kids in Missouri, including Springfield and northeastern Kansas, including Olathe and Overland Park! Plus, your car donation will get you a great tax deduction at tax time. Donate a vehicle today!
