Walk For Wishes®

Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic

Saturday, October 19, 2013

Dover Speedway, Dover, DE


Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic’s 2013 Walk For Wishes® is a community-wide celebration and effort to grant wishes for local children with life-threatening medical conditions. Walkers of all ages will come together at one of NASCAR’s most unique tracks and enjoy a day that includes the walk itself and ongoing family-fun festivities including great music, face painting, balloon art and other surprises.Each participant that raises $75+ will receive a commemorative T-shirt.

As this event supports Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic, participants are encouraged to raise funds to support the chapter's mission to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. The event allows individuals, companies and clubs to come together and help to share the power of a wish® through their fundraising for local wish children. Make-A-Wish will offer great tips on how to make fundraising easier. There will be several exciting "fundraising challenges" throughout the months preceding the event and top fundraisers will receive awards at the post-Walk celebration.
