About Walk for Wishes®

Walk For Wishes® is a family-friendly, community walk that raises funds to grant the wishes of children battling life-threatening medical conditions.

Walk For Wishes Welcome Video
This year, Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana has teamed up with Kentucky Kingdom to raise funds to grant local wishes. The Louisville Walk For Wishes will be held at the Kentucky Kingdom theme park!

In celebration of the partnership, the first 500 people to register and raise $100 through their personal fundraising page will be awarded one FREE admission ticket to Kentucky Kingdom. All participants who raise a minimum of $50 will receive a Walk For Wishes t-shirt.

Walk For Wishes is a nationwide Make-A-Wish® fundraiser that celebrates more than 270,000 wishes that have already been granted, while raising funds for future wishes. It's an event powered by wish families, volunteers, donors and friends. By participating, you can bring the life-changing impact of a wish to children in your community.

Kids battling life-threatening medical conditions often live in a world of no – no school, no friends, no sleepovers, and no playing outside. By participating in Walk For Wishes, you help us say ‘yes’ to something they deeply want. And that ‘yes’ is very powerful. In fact, 89% of medical professionals say that the wish experience can influence a wish kid’s physical health, and three out of four parents marked the wish as a turning point in their child’s fight against the illness.

You can change the lives through the power of a wish. Register today
