WALK WITH ME. WISH WITH ME.

Chicagoland: We invite you to be a part of the Make-A-Wish community as we come together to celebrate the power of a wish!

Every year, nearly 1,200 children in Illinois are newly diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. Make-A-Wish® believes that wishes are an important part of the overall care and treatment of these children. Each wish offers the opportunity for a joyous, life-changing experience.

Why a Wish? By participating in our event, you can help bring hope, strength and joy to children in your community who battle life-threatening medical conditions. To learn about the power of a wish, click here to learn more.

Who can participate? Wish families can register free of charge, but anyone who wants to walk with us is welcome to attend! When you come out to walk, you can dress up in a costume to start the celebration! Grab your family, friends, neighbors, coworkers and others to come out and walk as a team. 

 We also are excited to continue our Wish Village this year, where everyone can experience a glimpse of the joy of a wish being granted through fun activities.

How does this event make a difference? Great question! While fundraising is not required, it is encouraged. Participants can use our online fundraising tools to share with people around the world. Not only can people donate online to your personal or team page, but you can also hold your own fundraising events like a spaghetti dinner or car wash. The cash and checks you raise can be turned in on walk day, and will help us reach our goal that will make wishes come true!

A wish experience can truly change a child's life, and you can help make dreams come true.

Register today!
