The Make-A-Wish® Arizona Phoenix Walk For Wishes® is a family-friendly event powered by wish kids, volunteers, donors and friends to celebrate wishes granted and raise funds for future wishes right here in Arizona.
Make-A-Wish Arizona, the founding chapter of the international wish granting organization, raised more than $260,000 toward future Arizona wishes through the 2016 Phoenix Walk For Wishes presented by Isagenix, even though the event itself was rained out.
With the average cost of a wish approximately $10,000, the money raised by the Walk For Wishes will help grant more than 25 Arizona wishes.
Heavy rains on the morning of the walk did not deter individuals and corporate partners from attending to support the more than 380 Arizona wish kids scheduled to have a wish granted this year. Unfortunately, safety prevented the walk from starting.
All dollars were raised by individuals and corporate teams who registered for free for the walk and then raised funds through friends, family and co-workers. More than 147 teams and 2,100 individuals were scheduled to participate in the morning’s festivities but the weather did not cooperate.
Thank you to our wish families, volunteers, sponsors, participants and fundraisers for supporting our goal to grant the wish of every eligible child in Arizona.
