Walk For Wishes® is a family-friendly, community walk that raises funds for Make-A-Wish® to grant the wishes of children battling life-threatening medical conditions. This year, the goal is to raise more than $160,000 at Walk For Wishes through the support of 1,900+ participants. Sign up today to help make wishes come true for wish kids in your community!
Start a Team of family, friends and co-workers or walk as an individual. Participants are invited to stay for a post-walk celebration to meet courageous wish kids who had their heartfelt wish granted.
To date Make-A-Wish has granted more than 3,000 wishes in Indiana. Our goal this fiscal year is to reach more than 200 children in the community with a granted wish. Funds raised from Walk For Wishes will help make these wishes come true.
