Start Your Summer With A June Walk For Wishes Event

During the month of June, you can get fit while enjoying the gorgeous June weather, and while helping to grant wishes at the same time! Make-A-Wish helps to grant the wish of a child with a life-threatening medical condition every 38 minutes. When you participate in a local Walk for Wishes event, you can play a part in helping to make this possible. Make-A-Wish depends on generous donors, supporters, and volunteers to accomplish everything that they do for local children.

Can’t Attend? Donate A Car Instead

If you can’t attend any of these June Walk for Wishes events, consider car donation. You can still share the power of a wish through a donated car, truck, boat, motorcycle, or camper. Call 1-855-871-9474 or fill out an easy online vehicle donation form.

Your unwanted vehicle will be picked up or towed away at no charge to you, and you will receive a great tax deduction at tax time. The best benefit of all, however, is the fact that your car donation will help to make a wish come true for a child in your community.
