What do Spiderman, Wonder Woman and Captain America have in common?

They all made an appearance at our Walk For Wishes® 5K events in Redmond, WA and Spokane, WA this fall. 

Heroes, big and small, turned out in mass numbers – more than 1,300 – for our first hero-themed Walk events to raise more than $261,000 for wish granting. 

"We are asking walkers to raise funds in support of the 320 wishes we seek to grant this year," said Barry McConnell, President & CEO of Make-A-Wish® Alaska and Washington. "The funds contributed through the Walk For Wishes will help us grant many of these wishes."

You can still help! Contributions are still being accepted via personal Walk For Wishes fundraising pages, or through our General Donation page
