Powered by wish families, volunteers, companies and friends, Walk For Wishes®
is a nationwide Make-A-Wish®
fundraiser that celebrates the thousands of wishes thathave already been granted, while raising funds for future wishes.
The first-ever Walk For Wishes® Morgantown, which raised $24,805.78, was held in September 2016. Nearly 300 people attended, including more than 15 wish children and their families. Following pre-walk entertainment and opening ceremonies at the Hazel Ruby McQuain Amphitheater in Morgantown, WV, wish kids led the crowd in a warm-up with mascot Stella the Star before participants embarked on a 5K walk/run down the rail-trail.
