The third annual Philadelphia and Susquehanna Valley Walk For Wishes event is scheduled and ready to go this Saturday, Nov. 2. After two years of successful walks, they are bringing the event back to City Island in Harrisburg, Penn. The registration for this community event will begin at 9 a.m. with the walk starting promptly at 10 a.m. At the walk, you will have the opportunity to walk alongside Wish Kids, their families and like-minded individuals, all looking to raise money for Make-A-Wish.
Make-A-Wish Philadelphia and Susquehanna Valley has granted more than 4,470 wishes. Nationally, Make-A-Wish has granted more than 220,000 wishes. Each wish helps a child with a life-threatening medical condition gain an enhanced sense of hope. Make-A-Wish works with thousands of volunteers throughout the country to ensure that every wish can be granted. Events like the Philadelphia and Susquehanna Valley Walk For Wishes help to raise the necessary funds in order to make wishes come true. You have the opportunity to contribute to the happiness of Make-A-Wish Wish Kids in your area by participating in events like this.
Raise Money, Win Prizes
As an added bonus, at the Philadelphia and Susquehanna Valley Walk For Wishes event, those participants who go above and beyond in fundraising for Make-A-Wish will be eligible for some great prizes. The top individual fundraiser will receive a prize that is still being determined. Last year, the top prize was a Nook tablet! Second prize will be a gift card, donated by local sponsors and usable anywhere.
If you aren’t one of the top two fundraisers, you can still win some neat prizes. All individuals who raised more than $500 in donations will be entered to win a raffle – which will be filled with great and unique prizes, just as it has been in the past! And, even if you don’t win a prize, you can leave the event knowing that the money you raised will help a child-in-need.
