NEW LOCATION! This year's event will take place at Busse Woods in northwest suburban Elk Grove Village (previously held at Montrose Harbor).
Join us for a great day of fun in a beautiful location for a worthy cause. Walk & Run for Wishes is a costumed family fun run and walk to benefit Make-A-Wish® Illinois. An event popular with families, runners of all levels and corporate groups, Walk & Run for Wishes features an easy walk, a timed 5K and lots of fun and entertainment for all ages.
Participants are invited to celebrate the spirit of a wish by dressing up as their favorite hero or character. If you ever dreamed of being a wizard, leaping buildings in a single bound, or wearing glass slippers and dancing the night away at a ball, this is the day to live out your dreams. Prizes will be awarded for top fundraisers, best youth and adult costume participants and race winners.
