After a long and cold winter, we are all thrilled to feel the temperatures rising. We can finally step outside and have a much needed walk or run after months spent cooped up inside or curled up on the couch. What better way to celebrate the welcoming of spring than to participate in a Make-A-Wish Missouri Walk for Wishes event? Not only will you enjoy a beautiful spring day outdoors, but you can also help to make wishes come true!
Two Amazing Chances To Grant Wishes
Whether you live in Kansas City or St. Louis, you can participate in a Walk for Wishes event and help to grant wishes for Missouri kids. You may even see several amazing Wish Kids at the walk! Walk for Wishes events are fun for the whole family. Get your family and friends together and walk or run for Missouri Wish Kids.
The first Walk for Wishes event takes place on Saturday, April 5 in Kansas City, Mo. Taking place at Washington Square Park, this amazing event will go toward granting the wishes of over 48 local Wish Kids! Registration begins at 8 a.m., and the walk itself begins at 9 a.m. In addition to walking for wishes, guests will enjoy food, carnival games, and music.
While there is no registration fee for the Kansas City Walk for Wishes, participants are strongly encouraged to make a donation and raise $100 or more for Make-A-Wish Missouri. Earned proceeds help to grant wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions. Participants who raise $100 or more also receive an event t-shirt. Register today and begin fundraising! You can also sponsor a participant, even if you are unable to make this Walk for Wishes event, or consider making a general donation to Make-A-Wish Missouri.
Prefer To Run? Participate In The St. Louis 5K
If you prefer running to walking, the St. Louis Walk & Run event may be more of interest to you. This exciting event takes places on Saturday, April 12 in Forest Park. Registration for the 5K run is $25, but similar to the Kansas City walk, there is no registration fee for walkers. However, walkers are strongly encouraged to make a donation to Make-A-Wish Missouri and to fundraise. Earned proceeds will help to grant wishes for over 80 Missouri Wish Kids! The more funds you raise, the better.
Participants who raise $100 or more will receive a walk t-shirt, and all participants will feel wonderful knowing that they are helping to grant the wishes of deserving children. If you are unable to make the walk, consider sponsoring another participant.
Spring is finally here, so spend some time outdoors and enjoy it! The St. Louis Walk & Run event will start with registration at 8 a.m., the 5K run at 9 a.m., and the family fun run at 9:15 a.m. Guests will also enjoy carnival games, food, and music.
