More than half a million raised to grant local wishes.
On Saturday, March 11th, we celebrated Walk For Wishes®, which raised over half a million dollars to help transform lives through the power of a wish! This record-breaking event was not short of surprises or magical moments; the first being an announcement that Criss Angel was donating $100,000! The second surprise came in the form of a parade that began on the main stage and ended at the start line.
The parade, hosted by Kim & Dana Wagner of News 3, was chalk-full of inspiring Wish Kids, their stories, and an army of people who help grant life-changing wishes every day in our community; people who are otherwise considered “behind-the-scenes” collaborators of a wish come true. Some of these magic-makers include: Wish Parents, Siblings, Sponsors, Flight Attendants, Limo Drivers, Pilots, Doctors, and Nurses.
As thousands of people rushed through the spiraled balloon arch, Mercedes and JC of Mix 94.1 cheered and encouraged more than 3,000 people walking with a purpose. If you missed the event, there is still time to make an impact in a child’s life, while supporting our mission. Visit www.walkforwishessnv.org to donate to make wishes come true, today. The website will remain open through March 31st.
To all of our Wish Families, participants, sponsors, vendors, media partners, and volunteers – THANK YOU. Because of you, we are breaking ground on what this community can do when they come together because they believe in The Power of a Wish®.
