Washington, DC (March 27, 2018) – Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic invites the Washington, DC community to participate in Walk for Wishes® with Hope Sponsor BMW of Fairfax on April 15 at the National Mall to support local children with critical illnesses.

Who: Wish kids, their families and friends of Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic with Hope Sponsor BMW of Fairfax

What: Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic’s 2018 Walk for Wishes with Hope Sponsor BMW of Fairfax is 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: The National Mall SW Jefferson Drive & SW 12th Street, Washington, DC 20560  

When:

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.
