Make A Move for Make-A-Wish® is a special event organized by wish kid Zack Abel, who, after his wish experience, has been determined to Share the Power of a Wish® with other children with life-threatening medical conditions. Zack was granted his wish for a T-Rex dinosaur in 2005, and since then Zack and Make-A-Wish have shared a wonderful relationship.
Zack created Make A Move for Make-A-Wish, a five-mile bike ride, run and walk, in 2012 with a goal to raise $3,900 – the average cost of one wish. Through his hard work and dedication to the cause, Zack’s Make A Move raised a grand total of $23,477 in its first year – beyond surpassing his original goal. Since then, Make A Move has raised $161,649.64 for Make-A-Wish® Greater Pennsylvania and West Virginia. This past year's event raised $43,613.36.
