Make-A-Wish® North Dakota and Allegiant Travel Company have partnered together and are inviting North Dakota to walk - Walk for Wishes®. Families, friends and supporters will join together on Sunday, April 28 for the family-fun walk event.
With the busiest wish granting season approaching, participating in this statewide event will make a difference in the lives of North Dakota children living with life-threatening medical conditions. Past wish parent and longtime walk participant Anne Kiefel says it best, “Walk for Wishes® is important because it raises money for the wishes we grant, as well as building community and allowing families to come together to help those in need.”
You too can join and make a difference. As Anne described, Walk for Wishes® is designed as a community walk that provides the opportunity for family, friends and individuals to join together in exercise and camaraderie. Across the nation, thousands join Make-A-Wish® each year by participating in this event. The local meeting location is:
· Bismarck – Century High School
Registration will begin at 1 p.m., with the walk scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. While walkers are encouraged to collect pledges, this event is free to participate in. With a minimum donation of $25, participants will receive a commemorative T-shirt. You can either walk as an individual or on a team. Teams can represent businesses, families, coworkers, friends or school groups.
“Make-A-Wish is such an amazing and impactful foundation, and our team at Allegiant feels so honored to be part of these wish events in our local communities” said Andrew Levy, Allegiant Travel Company President.
