Bringing hope, strength and joy to children in your community who are battling life-threatening medical conditions is as easy as lacing up your walking shoes. The 7th Annual Walk For Wishes® takes place April 26, 2014, at Riverfront Park in Salem. Registration opens at 9 a.m. and the walk begins at 10 a.m.
The family-friendly 5K walk starts at the outdoor amphitheater and winds its way along Riverfront Park, where wish kids, volunteers and community members will walk in support of the Make-A-Wish® mission. By participating you can help make local wishes come true.
Register as an individual or put together a team of family and friends, and fundraise to help reach the goal of $60,000 for local children's wishes. Registration cost is $25 for adults, $10 for children, and all wish kids walk for free.
