Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic to Hold Walk For Wishes Baltimore

Date

March 30, 2018

Baltimore, MD (March 30, 2018) – Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic invites the Baltimore community to participate in Walk for Wishes® on April 29 at Rash Field at the Inner Harbor to support local children with critical illnesses. 

Who: Wish kids, their families and friends of Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic.  

What: Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic’s 2018 Walk for Wishes, a community event to celebrate local wish kids and raise money to grant wishes for local children battling critical illnesses. In addition to the family-friendly walk itself, attendees will enjoy music, carnival games, delicious food, face painting and the chance to hear firsthand from wish kids about the power of a wish experience.

Where: Rash Field at the Inner Harbor, 201 Key Highway, Baltimore, MD 21230 

When: Sunday, April 29, 8:30 AM – 12:30 PM   

Why: To raise awareness and funds for Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic’s efforts to serve local children. It is estimated that 840 children in DC, Maryland and northern Virginia will be diagnosed with a critical illness each year. For each wish granted, at least one more local child is waiting for their wish. Make-A-Wish relies on community support to grant wishes, and help close the gap between children who are eligible for a wish and those who receive one.

How: Registration is free, but walkers are encouraged to fundraise or donate leading up to the event. For more information or to register, please visit www.WalkForWishesBalitmore.org.
