The Make-a-Wish foundation is one organization that I hold close to my heart. My life has changed after witnessing multiple wishes get granted through this wonderful organization. The Make-a-Wish foundation is preparing for their third annual Walk for Wishes celebration on Saturday, April 27th from 8am to 12pm at the Orange County Great Park. The walk will be held in conjunction with World Wish Day, the anniversary of the organization’s first granted wish.

Registration for the walk and festivities is $25 now through 5 p.m. on April 12, and includes a Make-A-Wish t-shirt, food, and access to all of the day’s exciting activities.

Starting April 13, registration will be $35 through Friday, April 26 at noon. After that time, online registration will no longer be available. On-site registration is $40 on the day of the walk. To register, go to: www.walkforwishes2013oc.kintera.org.

Last year, the 2nd Annual Orange County Walk For Wishes hosted more than 1,400 participants and raised nearly $200,000, helping Make-A-Wish Orange County and the Inland Empire grant the wishes of 35 local children. This year, the goal for the walk is to grant at least 40 wishes with the funds raised and to create a stronger local presence within the Orange County community.
