Are you looking for ways to benefit Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana this summer? If you are, we have plenty of opportunities for you to help make wishes come true for kids in areas like Akron, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Columbus, Toledo, Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, Evansville, Louisville and Lexington. You can donate your car to Wheels For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish, or participate in one of three upcoming Walk For Wishes events taking place in Columbus, Indianapolis, and Cleveland.
Donate Your Car
Summer is the perfect time to donate your car since there are more opportunities for walking or biking places. If you have an unwanted car, truck, boat, or motorcycle that is taking up space in your driveway or garage, consider donating your car to charity and let your vehicle benefit Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana. Your car donation will help to grant the wish of a local child in your community. Plus, you will receive free pick up or towing of your vehicle, and a great tax deduction at tax time.
To donate your car to charity, please call 1-877-431-9474 or fill out an online car donation form.
Walk To Grant Wishes
If you don’t have a vehicle to donate at this time, you can still help to make wishes come true by walking in one of the upcoming Make-A-Wish Walk For Wishes events. Walk For Wishes in Indianapolis on July 18 and take part in celebrating the 10th Annual Walk For Wishes event at Fort Harrison State Park. If you live in Ohio, you can attend the 23rd Annual Walk For Wishes event at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo.
July 25 will be the 16th Annual Walk For Wishes event McFerson Commons in Columbus. Whichever Walk For Wishes event you attend, you will be helping to grant wishes for kids in your community.

At all three events, participants are strongly encouraged to participate in fundraising for Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana.
Can’t Attend? Sponsor Another Walker
If you cannot attend any of these upcoming Walk For Wishes events, consider sponsoring another walker. You will be helping to raise money for Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana. Sponsor a walker in Indianapolis, Cleveland, or Columbus, or consider becoming a Virtual Walker.
Virtual Walkers are participants that cannot attend the event, but would still like to participate in fundraising for Make-A-Wish. Virtual Walkers do not receive the same benefits as direct participants, such as event t-shirts or admission to event activities, but they do help to make wishes come true for local children. Register today and help to make wishes come true in your community!
