About the Moline Area Walk for Wishes®


THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF OUR EVENT! Over 250 people gathered to celebrate on June 3rd. Donations are still being accepted as we strive to meet our goal so that more wishes can come true.
Join us Spring/Summer 2018 for our next event! 



 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 walks, you can help bring hope, joy and strength to children in your community who battle life-threatening medical conditions. Click here to learn more.

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

We also are excited we had our new Wish Village this year, where everyone can experience a glimpse of the joy from our four most common wish types.

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 even now after the event, and will help us reach our $24,000 goal that will make wishes come true!

A wish experience can truly change a child's life, and so can you.
