We are taking the Walk for Wishes VIRTUAL! In the best interest of the children and families we serve, we want to make sure that everyone can safely participate in this year’s event. So while we're walking at a social distance, we're united behind wishes! Wherever you are on August 14, 2020 we invite you to lace up your shoes and WALK so Montana children can WISH.
What is a Virtual Walk?
With a virtual walk, you pick where you walk, who you walk with, and what time you start. Register on the Walk for Wishes website as normal so you don’t miss important updates, extras, and new tools to help you fundraise! In the weeks leading to the virtual event, use our Virtual Participation Guide to participate in fun activities. Then join us on event day by sharing your home activities and tune in for live programming during the day!
Why should I participate?
Not only does walking have incredible health benefits, your commitment to wish children and families is critical – particularly now. Make-A-Wish Montana grants on average 40 wishes per year and 80% of these wishes involve air travel or large group settings. At this time, we estimate over 25 local wishes are currently being affected by COVID-19 related postponements this year and over 1,000 have been postponed across chapters nationwide. Community events like Walk for Wishes play a critical role in raising funds to grant wishes. We are counting on your support so that once these circumstances have passed, we are able to quickly and efficiently grant the wishes that have been postponed and all the other wishes that are waiting.
Do I get a T-shirt?
Any participant that raises $100 or more will receive our Walk for Wishes T-shirt. Be sure to share your unisex t-shirt size when you register. We will post details for shirt pick up and distribution as we get closer to the event date!
What if I can’t virtually Walk on August 14?
That’s okay! Sign up, walk anytime and wear your T-shirt proudly. We’ll be sharing photos and more communications on our social media that day and hope you will too (be sure to tag @makeawishmontana and use #walkforwishesMT) - but we’ll be excited to hear about your walk whenever you do it.
