Wishes came true thanks to the footsteps of many on May 6, 2006, during the first-ever Kids For Wish Kids® “Walk for Wishes” event to benefit Make-A-Wish® Central New York.
This fun family event was organized by the chapter’s Associate Board and was held at beautiful Onondaga Lake Park, north of the city of Syracuse, N.Y. Cold, rainy weather didn’t dampen the spirits of some 250 walkers who came out that morning to show their support. Walkers, including many wish families, raised funds for Make-A-Wish through pre-sold pledges. The first time event met their modest goal of $6,000 — enough to grant one wish!
