2017 Walk For Wishes® Washington, DC. Join this community-wide celebration and use your superpowers to grant the wishes of local kids battling life-threatening medical conditions. Our Walk for Wishes superheroes unite to raise awareness and funds to make wishes come true.
For every wish granted, there are at least two more local kids waiting to receive a wish. It is estimated that 840 children in the Mid-Atlantic region will be diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition this year alone. We rely on superheroes like you to help us close the gap between the kids waiting for a wish and those who are able to receive one.
Walkers will fundraise leading up to Walk For Wishes, then join wish children, families and other enthusiastic supporters of our mission on the day of the event! Make your walk more meaningful by forming a team of your family, friends, colleagues or community group. Activities will include inflatable games, crafts, face painting and music - all while enjoying the beautiful National Mall.
