By participating in one of the many walks held throughout the country, you can help bring the life-changing impact of a wish to children in your community who are battling life-threatening medical conditions.

A wish experience can truly change a child's life, and you can help. Register today and join us in raising important funds that will help make wishes come true for eligible kids.
