Every 34 minutes Make-A-Wish® grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a critical illness in the United States and its territories. We believe that a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides Make-A-Wish® in everything they do. It inspires them to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve. Did you know that Make-A-Wish® grants more than 15,000 wishes nationwide every year? That’s a lot, yes. But that’s only 50% of the eligible kids. Every hour of every day, three children are diagnosed with a critical illness. Every one of these kids needs a wish to give them strength to help them heal. By participating in this virtual race you are providing critical funds for Make-A-Wish® to grant wishes for deserving kids and their families. Let's show these families the happiness, relief and renewal a wish can bring. The Wishes Virtual Run features a No Run Run, for those simply want to make a donation without running, a 5K, 10K, and Half Marathon. You can walk, run, or hike to complete your miles. If you can't run on September 26, no problem, complete your miles between September 19-26 and submit your time.
