Wishmaker Walk for Wishes in Kelowna
Do you enjoy getting involved in your local community while working with other like-minded individuals to achieve a common goal? If the answer is yes, then Childrenâ€™s Wish Foundation has a wonderful opportunity for you!
On Saturday, October 13th, 2012 The BC & Yukon Chapter of The Childrenâ€™s Wish Foundation of Canada will be hosting its 8th Annual Wishmaker Walk for Wishes and we would love to bring this magical event to your community!
We are seeking a group of dedicated volunteers to plan and execute a Wishmaker Walk for Wishes in Kelowna. This â€œOrganizing Committeeâ€ will consist of five to eight members and will be managed by a Wishmaker Walk Chair(s). Childrenâ€™s Wish will support the Organizing Committee every step of the way and will provide all materials, supplies, and information required to run a successful walk.
The Wishmaker Walk for Wishes is a family-oriented, pledge-based walk that builds community spirit and unity while supporting The Childrenâ€™s Wish Foundation. It has raised over $9 million nationwide since 2005 and will take place in more than 100 communities across Canada this October. Since its inception in 1984, The Childrenâ€™s Wish Foundation has granted over 18,000 heartfelt wishes to children (aged three to 17) living with high-risk, life-threatening illnesses and we canâ€™t wait to grant many more exceptional wishes with your help!
In 2011, four unique Wishmaker Walks took place in BC: New Westminster, Victoria, Kelowna and Penticton and together we raised $26,000! We have granted 30 heartfelt wishes to children residing in Kelowna.
