THANK YOU to everyone who joined us on Sunday, September 11th for our 13th Annual Walk for Wishes! Your participation and donations will help make wishes come true for children with life-threatening medical conditions in Illinois.

Donations are still being accepted towards this walk online and by mail. Send donations with a note about their designation to: Chicago Walk for Wishes, Make-A-Wish Illinois, 640 N. Lasalle, Suite 280, Chicago, IL, 60654-3754

A wish come true helps children feel stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to battle their life-threatening medical conditions. For many of our wish children, the wish experience marks a turning point in their fight against their illnesses.

We hope you enjoyed celebrating the magic that is Make-A-Wish!
