What's better than taking a long walk in the beautiful spring air? When you can raise money for a worthy cause while doing it! The Walk For Wishes benefitting Make-A-Wish Georgia takes place at Atlanta's Turner Field on Saturday morning, April 20. The goal of the walk is to raise more than $325,000, and all of the proceeds from the walk will benefit Make-A-Wish Georgia.
