Twin Falls, ID:
The 5th Annual Walk for Wishes Magic Valley event will be held Saturday, September 26 at 10 a.m. Due to COVID-19, the event will take place virtually with each participant walking separately in their own neighborhood, on a nature trail, on a treadmill at home or wherever they might choose. Participants will be asked to post themselves walking on social media and to tag Make-A-Wish Idaho in order to help raise awareness for wish kids who have had their wishes postponed.
This year’s Walk for Wishes Magic Valley will support wishes like thirteen-year-old Shawn’s. His favorite activity is riding in a bicycle trailer, but due to his neuromuscular disorder, he often experiences pain and discomfort getting in and out of traditional bicycle trailers. Shawn wished for a custom-made pedicab, so he can continue to enjoy his bike rides in comfort and safety.
Walk for Wishes Magic Valley is an event that celebrates wishes that have been granted in Idaho while raising funds for future wishes. You can sign up today as a sponsor, walk team or volunteer. There is no registration fee; though Make-A-Wish Idaho asks participants to raise $100 or more to help grant wishes to more Idaho
wish kids. Participants are asked to tag Make-A-Wish Idaho during their walks (on Facebook
, Twitter: @MakeAWish_Idaho
or Instagram: @maw_idaho
), using the hashtag #walkforwishesmagicvalley
For the children, families and our community, your support can make all the difference. It is the mission of Make-A-Wish Idaho to grant life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Their vision is a wish for every eligible child in Idaho. Right now, for every child who receives the life-affirming gift of a wish experience, there is another child they are still trying to reach.
