Wishmaker Walk On Oct.13
Mississauga: The steadily increasing number of children referred to Children’s Wish leads to a greater need for fundraising activities such as Wishmaker Walk for Wishes. Currently there are 97 pending wishes in the Peel Region.
On October 13, thousands of people will walk together to raise funds to grant the most heartfelt wishes of children living with a life threatening illness. Mississauga will host a Wishmaker Walk for Wishes at Father Kamber Croation Park, 4525 Mississauga Road. Registration begins at 10:00, the walk at 11:00 and the celebration starts at 12:00 pm. The event is a day of family fun which includes activities for participants of all ages.
Wishmaker Walk for Wishes is the largest and single most important fundraising event for The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada and its success ensures the continued tradition of never refusing an eligible child a wish. Participants or “Wishmakers” make an important contribution by collecting pledges prior to walk day and walking the route in their area. Participants or “Wishmakers” who raise more than $100 have the opportunity to earn rewards, including a chance to win a trip for four to Florida or a Sun destination, courtesy of Air Transat and Marlin Travel.
“We are very excited about this year’s Wishmaker Walk for Wishes,” commented Sandra Harris, Director, Ontario Region “and we are looking forward to seeing the many Wishmaker participants who help to ensure that Children’s Wish continues to grant exceptional wishes to children and their families across Ontario.”
Individuals, families, groups and companies nationwide are invited to take part in a local walk this October to help create the magic of a wish. To find the nearest walk location or to register, visit www.wishmaker.ca .
