Please join us for Walk for Wishes® on April 5, 2014 benefiting Make-A-Wish® North Texas. This 5k Walk and Fun Walk is a family-friendly, community event that raises funds to grant wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions in West Texas.

Join a team, register as an individual, or create a team made up of your friends, family and colleagues. Can't make it to the event, but still want to help? Donate or create a fundraising page by registering as a Virtual Participant for free.

Not RACE for Wishes...WALK for Wishes!
Why Walk for Wishes? If you are a returning participant you are probably are wondering why the change to Walk for Wishes from Race for Wishes? It's simple...taking out the logistics of a run will help us focus on what is most important and that is raising money to grant more wishes! There will be no bibs, no pre-packet pick up and no timing. Instead, you will be mailed a wristband which will grant you access to enjoy all of the event's festivities. Still want to run? Great! We just ask that you start at the front of the group and you are welcome to time yourself. There will still be both a 5k and Fun Walk route.

Fundraising Incentives & Tools
This year we are encouraging every participant to raise a minimum of $100. It's simple to do and we have plenty of tools to help you reach your goal! There are also some great incentives and team prizes to get you motivated to raise money and help grant wishes!
