Make A Move for Make-A-Wish at Wish Kid Zack's Annual Fundraising Event

Zack's Make A Move for Make-A-Wish
Zack’s fourth annual Make A Move for Make-A-Wish® event will be held Sunday, July 26, 2015, starting at 9 a.m. at the North Park Lake in Allison Park, Pa. The event consists of a 5-mile walk, run, or bike ride around the lake, beginning and ending at the North Park Boathouse, with all proceeds benefiting Make-A-Wish® Greater Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

Registration fees are $25 for adults, $15 for kids ages 5-12, and free for kids ages 4 and under. This fee covers race participation, a Make A Move T-shirt, refreshments from Panera Bread and Eat ’n’ Park, face painting, and entertainment. Bikers, runners, and walkers will be electronically timed via bib by Elite Runners, and prizes will be given to the top male and female in each category.

Interested participants can pre-register at or register on site from 8 – 8:45 a.m. For more information please contact Natalie Abel at angnyvr.nory@ubgznvy.pbz or (412) 370 5070.

Make A Move is brought to you by Zack Abel, a wish kid who had his wish fulfilled in 2005 for a T-Rex dinosaur. Wanting to give back to Make-A-Wish, Zack created the race to help fulfill the wishes of other children with life-threatening medical conditions. Now 15 years old, Zack has raised over $120,000 through this event in just three years.
