Take A Step In The Right Direction With The Walk For Wishes Fundraiser

Posted in Donate Car Central & Northern Florida News, Saturday, March 8, 2014

While the rest of the country is shoveling off their front porch and looking forward to spring, here in Orlando we have the benefit of year-long sunshine! When you take part in the Seventh Annual Allegiant Air Orlando Walk For Wishes in Downtown Orlando at Lake Eola, Thursday, March 13, you can enjoy that great weather while also helping to raise money for a great cause. All of the proceeds from the Walk For Wishes Orlando event will benefit Make-A-Wish Central and Northern Florida and will help to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions in your community.

The walk will begin at 5 p.m. and the registration fee for the event is $10, but registrants are encouraged to raise more. If you are able to raise $100 or more, you will receive the official Walk For Wishes T-shirt and will instantly become eligible for some other great prizes. Along with two scenic laps around Lake Eola, participants will enjoy complimentary food and beverages, caricature artists, prizes, great music and a special appearance by Wish Kids who have been granted wishes in the past!

For more information or to start your team visit the event website or contact Heather Pesch. Your support will help Make-A-Wish grant a wish to a child in your community and offer them an opportunity to enjoy a day just being a kid.

Your Contribution Can Help To Make Your Community A Better Place

Make-A-Wish Central and Northern Florida granted more than 250 wishes last year and serves 54 counties in Florida. Your contribution to Make-A-Wish can help to grant the wishes of children in cities like Orlando, Saint Petersburg, Tampa, and Jacksonville. Your donation makes a bigger difference than you could have ever imagined! Our partner, Make-A-Wish, believes a wish experience can be a game-changer for a child with a life-threatening medical condition. That is why their volunteers and organization is so passionate about providing a wish for every deserving child throughout the United States. A wish can take a child throughout the world and help them through one of the most difficult times in their life.

Ditch The Car And Help Make-A-Wish                                              

Chances are if you are taking part in events like the Walk For Wishes Orlando, you have decided to live as healthy as possible. This includes exercise and diet, but have you given any thought to what you breathe in on a day-to-day basis? Cars can add pollution and chemicals to your diet that you just don’t want, but they are also a necessity for most people. If you have a car that you no longer want or need, you can do something positive by making a car donation!

If you haven’t considered donating a car you might be asking where can I donate a car? How about donating to a cause you are already very passionate about? Wheels For Wishes will pick-up or tow away your car for free to benefit Make-A-Wish. That means your car donation can help to make wishes come true in your community. As if making wishes come true isn’t enough, you will also receive the maximum possible tax deduction for your donation – even if your car no longer runs, it can still help provide wishes in your area! Give us a call today at 1-877-709-9474 or use the online donation form to make your donation. Make your city cleaner and your body healthier when you donate to Wheels For Wishes.
