While the rest of the country is shivering and finding any excuse to stay inside, down in Florida the weather is cool enough to enjoy a nice stroll outside without worrying about overheating. Walk on over to Oviedo High School Saturday, Jan. 11, from 10 a.m. until noon to enjoy the nice weather while raising money for a great cause! The Oviedo Lions Walk For Wishes will begin Saturday with registration taking place at 9 a.m. Invite your friends to join you, registration is only $10, but if you can raise an additional $50 you will receive an official Lions Walk For Wishes T-shirt. Individuals of all ages are invited to participate.

Anyone who has participated in a Walk For Wishes event will tell you it is great fun, but don’t take their word for it – come out and enjoy some fun in the sun Saturday! Your contribution will help raise funds for our partner, Make-A-Wish Central and Northern Florida. Each donation can make a huge difference in the life of a child, and at the Walk For Wishes event, 100 percent of the proceeds will help grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses in your local community.

During the walk there will also be other activities available. You and your family can enjoy caricature paintings, great complimentary food and drinks, special prizes and music! The event promises to be fun for the whole family and will be an experience you won’t soon forget.

Donate And Be Proud About The Difference Your Donation Will Make

You will feel great making a contribution to our partner Make-A-Wish. Your local Make-A-Wish helps children with critical illnesses wishes come true, and gives an enhanced sense of hope to a child in need. Last year, Make-A-Wish Central and Northern Florida granted more than 285 wishes to local children. Wishes can take Wish Kids to places like Honolulu and Boston.

Since each child is unique, so too are their wishes. Make-A-Wish works hard to ensure that every possible wish can come true! By participating in fun Make-A-Wish events, like the Walk For Wishes fundraiser in Oviedo, you help to make it possible for each and every wish to come true. So gather your friends, family and co-workers and come together to enjoy a fun day in beautiful Florida this Saturday.
