This is your chance to participate in the world’s largest and most popular marathon while spreading the mission of Make-A-Wish. Make-A-Wish creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. A wish isn’t just a nice, heartwarming experience. It’s a necessity that gives kids the mental stamina to face their illness and fight it. Wishes have proven physical and emotional benefits that can give children with critical illnesses a higher chance of survival. Every 20 minutes a child is diagnosed with a critical illness and every one of these kids needs a wish to give them strength and help them heal. To date, Make-A-Wish Metro and Western New York has granted the wishes of almost 14,000 children in the five boroughs of New York City, Nassau county and 17 counties in the Buffalo and Rochester areas.
Make-A-Wish has five coveted spots on our inaugural team for a guaranteed entry to the New York City Marathon! Those who would like to represent Make-A-Wish in this elite 26.2 mile event are required to fundraise a minimum of $4,000.
