  • "I walk to help ensure wish children and their families can experience the joy of a wish. Often the family’s life is overshadowed by the restrictions placed upon the child/family, numerous doctor’s appointments, multiple hospital visits and other limitations or difficulties that they must endure. By walking in the annual Walk for Wishes and raising funds for Make-A-Wish, I can help bring joy to the children and help not only them, but their entire family forget about the challenges that they continue to face every day and experience what makes their child happy – to feel like a kid again." - Todd, wish granter volunteer.
