On March 26th, 2016, Make-A-Wish® South Carolina will host the inaugural Walk For Wishes® 5K Walk/Run at Jarvis Park in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Hundreds of people will participate to raise money to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Proceeds from the walk will help ensure that every medically-eligible child receives a wish. A fulfilled wish offers a sick child a much-needed retreat from doctors and hospitals, helping them focus on just being a kid again.
The average cost of a wish is $7,500, but the impact of a wish is priceless.
Your support as a walker, team leader or sponsor will not only help us grant 180 wishes this year, you will provide what every child deserves, a moment to just be a child: to dream, laugh, play and be free of a routine of doctors, hospitals and treatment.
After walking through Jarvis Park, there’s a lot for the entire family to enjoy! The post-walk festivities will include fun, food and entertainment.
Destination Vacation is a proud sponsor of the Lowcountry Walk for Wishes and encourages your support of this worthy cause, too! Learn more by visiting their website.
