Superheroes of all ages are invited to join Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic at our
2018 Walk For Wishes® Washington, DC. Use your superpowers to join local wish families, community supporters and volunteers and help change the lives of local children battling critical illnesses. In addition to the family-friendly walk itself, attendees will enjoy music, carnival games, delicious food, face painting, a pop-up PureBarre class and the chance to hear firsthand from wish kids about the power of a wish experience. REGISTRATION IS FREE!
For every wish granted, there is one more local child 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 can 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.
