Walk for Wishes 2014

Wishes Will Come True at the Zoo!

Join us on May 10, 2014 for Make-A-Wish® Connecticut's Walk for Wishes at Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo in Bridgeport!

This year's event will become the largest wish send-off party in our chapter's history when we surprise a six-year old girl with her wish to go on a Disney cruise! A limo will drive into the zoo and open to reveal some of her favorite characters. The characters will invite the little princess and her family on stage where they'll find out that their luggage is in the limo and that they are leaving THAT MINUTE for the airport!

To be able to include our supporters in such a magical moment is a thrill for us. We can tell you about how a wish affects a child, but nothing compares to seeing a child's face light up with hope and possibility when they discover that their one true wish is about to come true. Not only will we be giving this little girl and her family an unforgettable memory to cherish, we'll be impacting the lives of everyone in attendance as we collectively share the power of a wish®.

Help us reach our goal of $100,000! At the average cost of $10,000 per wish, this will enable us to grant wishes to 10 Connecticut kids!

Each participant is asked to raise money to help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. You can make wishes come true by walking as an individual, starting or joining a team, sponsoring a participant or making a donation. All preregistered participants will receive a food ticket for that day. There will also be food and beverages available for purchase.

Each participant who raises the suggested goal amount of $25.00 will receive a special "Wish Kit" for the wish send-off.

There will be a suggestion minimum donation of $10 for day-of event registrants.
