Join us for the 10th Annual Walk For Wishes in Indianapolis to help raise funds for Make-A-Wish® Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.
Help make wishes come true and spread hope, strength and joy to children with life-threatening medical conditions through this powerful fundraising event.
On Saturday, July 18, 2015 more than 1,200 walkers, sponsors and volunteers will come together. There are currently more than 800 Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana children waiting for their wish to come true. To help grant these wishes, Walk For Wishes hopes to raise more than $200,000 in 2015.
Recruit a team or walk as an individual, and join wish families, corporations and community groups for a magical day of helping make wishes come true.
Participants will enjoy a family-friendly 1- or 3-mile walk followed by a Finish Line Celebration with music, food and fun. Walkers will also have the opportunity to meet wish families and experience the power of a wish come true.
Meet the Honorary Wish Kid
Elizabeth, now age 16, had her heartfelt wish granted in 2008 to go on a New York City trip based off her favorite movie, "Eloise at the Plaza." While in treatment for a brain tumor, Elizabeth always kept her spirits high by watching Eloise's adventures, and when asked what her one true wish would be, she chose to visit the Plaza Hotel and explore the city just like Eloise. The trip was filled with luxury and fun for Elizabeth and her family - they even had their own butler and room service deliveries of all their favorite candies and snacks.
Today, Elizabeth is thriving as a high school student and still cherishes the memories of her wish come true. She shares, "My wish is something that I will never forget! When I think back to my wish, I remember what a great time I had in New York City with my family. The highlight of my trip was getting to live like Eloise at the Plaza Hotel. My wish allowed for me and my family to forget about the hospital and have a great time together!"
