Join KCTV5 and Make-A-Wish as we celebrate 35 years of granting life-changing wishes to local children with critical illnesses.
The Walk For Wishes event has been the largest Make-A-Wish event in Kansas City for the last three years.
This year, Make-A-Wish hopes to grant an additional 30 wishes to Kansas City children battling critical illnesses with this one event.
The Walk For Wishes, presented by Bartimus Frickleton Robertson and Rader, is a community-wide fundraising effort and celebration to grant the wishes of local children facing critical illnesses. Families, friends, corporations and supporters are invited to walk and run together to raise the essential funds needed to grant local wishes for children here in our community.
Participants are encouraged to sign up as individuals, create teams or join teams formed by wish families and other Make-A-Wish supporters. Then, on walk day, step right up and join the Make-A-Wish circus.
This year’s event will feature a fun-filled circus atmosphere full of family fun. This year’s event will also feature a family-friendly Wish Zone with fun for all ages - including bounce houses, food, music, games and much more.
Registration opens at 8 a.m. with the official walk kicking off at 9 a.m. There is no charge to register for the walk and the community is encouraged to bring their family, friends and even their dogs.
