Take the first step in making wishes come true for local children battling critical illnesses by joining us at this year’s Walk For Wishes®, a family-friendly 5K walk on Sunday, September 10, 2017, in Eisenhower Park, East Meadow, NY

Walk For Wishes is a family-friendly community event that raises funds to grant wishes by bringing together local companies, wish families and supporters of Make-A-Wish. 

Walkers fuel up with complimentary breakfast snacks and get pumped to move with music from a local DJ. A pre-walk Zumba warm-up, face painters and bouncy houses for the kids add to the fun. Wish kids and families, past and present, are always on hand to lend their support, help raise money for future wishes and to provide wish inspiration.

In just three years, Walk For Wishes has raised over $400,000 for Make-A-Wish Metro New York. Plan to be a part of its continued success. Bring a friend – or ten or twenty! Whether you walk solo, with a friend, or as part of a team, your fundraising dollars will help children in our community see beyond their illnesses.
