Make-A-Wish® Hosts 3rd Annual Walk For Wishes® At Pack Square Park


November 01, 2014


Asheville, NC

What steps would you take to help grant a wish?

Asheville, NC - Make-A-Wish® Central and Western North Carolina will be taking steps to grant wishes Saturday, November 1, 2014 at Pack Square Park during Asheville’s third annual Walk For Wishes. It is a non-competitive, 5K, child-friendly walk through the park and parts of downtown Asheville where every dollar raised goes straight to granting the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions in Central and Western North Carolina.

Registration and check-in opens at 9:00 a.m. The walk will start at 10:00 a.m. with an awards ceremony following.  Fun, food and prizes will ensure each participant a great time.

This event is more than a walk to raise money; it is a symbol of the path that wish children and their families have journeyed on – and a celebration of our chapter’s involvement in every wish experience. It is our mission to bring hope, strength and joy to each family we touch. You can join in on this amazing experience by supporting our 2014 Walk for Wishes in Asheville.

Supporters can participate by signing up as an individual walker, registering a team, sponsoring or just donating to the cause. For more information on the event, sponsoring or to register, go to, or contact Laura Blaha by phone at (704) 339-0334 or email at

Currently, more than 200 children are waiting on a wish in Central and Western North Carolina. Proceeds from this event will be used to grant wishes to local children in our community.

Join us on November 1, 2014 at Carrier Park and share in the power of not just one, but every wish!
