Walk For Wishes Steps Into The Greater Bay Area

Posted in Donate Car News, Tuesday, August 2, 2016
Walk For Wishes Steps Into The Greater Bay Area

Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area is delivering three Walk For Wishes events to the North, East and South Bay areas. This August, remember and honor loved ones or support local wish kids by participating in the Walk For Wishes. All the proceeds from the family event will go toward benefiting Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area which helps local children with life-threatening medical conditions receive their one true wish. Whether you live near Petaluma, Moraga, or Mountain View, a Walk For Wishes event is coming to your neck of the woods this August! 

Events

All three Walk For Wishes events this August will be fun-filled family events. Featuring breakfast, kids’ activities, entertainment and the walk, Walk For Wishes in North, East and South Bay is not only an event that the whole family can enjoy—it also raises money for local wish kids.

  • North Bay Walk For Wishes: On August 13, walkers will meet at Shollenberger Park (1400 Cader Ln, Petaluma, Calif. 94954) at 8 a.m. for registration.
  • East Bay Walk For Wishes: Next, participants can once again meet for registration at 8 a.m. on August 20 at Saint Mary’s College (1928 St Mary’s Rd, Moraga, Calif. 94556).
  • South Bay Walk For Wishes: The third Walk For Wishes event will take place at Google Headquarters in Mountain View (1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043) at 8 a.m. on August 27.

Registration And Sponsorships

Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area is looking to grant 400 wishes this year. From these three events alone, they are looking to raise enough money to grant 32 wishes. Each wish costs on average $7,500, so, between these three events, they hope to raise over $240,000.

Whether you are looking to walk in a team or by yourself, Make-A-Wish Greater bay Area encourages you to set a goal for fundraising. The average walker raises about $500, while others have raised over $25,000. Every dollar counts when it comes to making wishes come true! Register today to start fundraising your walk for the North Bay, East Bay and South Bay. The top fundraising individuals and teams will win great incentives!

Grant Even More Wishes

Maybe walking at this event will change your life, and you will start walking instead of driving. Maybe you just want more space in your garage or driveway. There are plenty of reasons to get rid of your unwanted vehicle, and Wheels For Wishes gives you a way to do it and a great reason!

With free towing and a great tax deduction, Wheels For Wishes, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, gives you a hassle-free way to get rid of your unwanted vehicle.
