Walk For Wishes To Help Philadelphia And Harrisburg Kids

Posted in Donate Car News, Monday, October 8, 2012

There are two great opportunities in October for you to help out and raise funds for kids in the state of Pennsylvania! You can attend the two-mile Walk for Wishes to benefit Make-A-Wish Philadelphia & Susquehanna Valley, and have a blast while walking to make wishes come true. The Walks will take place on Sunday, October 14th and Sunday, October 21st. Register and start raising money today!

Get your walking shoes ready, because this Sunday, October 14th gives you the chance to Walk for Wishes to benefit Philadelphia Area kids! Join in on the fun at Morris Arboretum, and help grant the wishes of kids in your very own state! You can even walk arm-in-arm with Wish Kids in your own community.

Aside from car donation, walking for wishes is an excellent way to support your local community and raise funds for kids in Pennsylvania. You can register and raise funds as an individual or a team with family, friends, and even colleagues. Register online or on Walk Day from 9-10am. The walk ceremony will begin at 10 with a post-walk party for participants to follow at 11am.  

Large teams of 10 people or more will not have a registration fee, and small teams of 5-9 people are $15. Individual adults of 18 years old and older are $15, and children under the age of 18 are free.

Those who raise money will be rewarded with great prizes, so raise as much money as you can for Philadelphia kids!

Similarly, you can register online to Walk for Wishes on Sunday, October 21st for Harrisburg kids at City Island. However, if you cannot attend either walks, you can still raise funds to benefit your local Make-A-Wish Philadelphia and Susquehanna Valley. Like the Philadelphia walk, those who raise the most funds will be rewarded, so start fundraising right away!

Donating a car is something you can feel great about all year, and the Walk for Wishes gives you something you can participate in and walk firsthand with a Wish Kid. That way, when you donate your car to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish Philadelphia and Susquehanna Valley, you can remember that smiling child you saw on walk day.

For more information on both of the walks, please visit and get started with raising funds today!
