What a day we had at the Zoo with our Walk for Wishes supporters!

Walk for Wishes PHL 2017
First we would like say a big thank you to everyone who came out even through the small down pour of rain we had during registration… and if you were there last year thank you for taking a chance and coming back!

We would also like to give a huge shout out to all the incredible, wonderful teams and your fundraising efforts. You all really did an amazing job.

And what a wonderful day we had on Sunday, you all showed up bright and early with smiles on your faces! Everywhere you looked there was smiling and laughter whether it was playing corn hole or pumpkin bowling, making a bracelet at Kaitlyn’s Crew table, or even deciding which raffle to take a chance on. At one point even one of the monkeys adventured through the Treetop Trail to see what all the fun was about! On top of that we were able to do a wish reveal for Lillith and the Kirk family who just left on Monday for Disney, as well!

Congratulations to all of our raffle winners, and a special thank you to everyone who donated a prize and allowed everyone a chance to win! We hope those who won enjoy your prizes, especially, the Katy Perry ticket winners…have a great time this Thursday...

An amazing round of applause to Team Cheap Caribbean for raising over $6,300 to help grant more wishes! We were honored to have Cheap Caribbean CEO, Steve Dumaine, onsite to help us introduce our awesome wish kids and lead off our walk...

Thanks so much to our amazing, fun, talented DJ and Emcee Mark Shepperd from 101.1 More FM who kept our crowd having fun at the Zoo and a special thanks to ABC daytime dramas' General Hospital and One Life to Live,actress  Kristen Alderson...

Special shout out to our friends, Nakita and Alison, at La Colombe for keeping us energized with delicious Draft Latte’s and Cold Brew...

We love having the MoreFMPhilly Promotions Team and Morey the Monkey who provided us with a lot of fun, games and laughs...

We are so grateful for the best volunteers who were at the Zoo early on Sunday morning to get ready for our wish families and walkers. So many thanks to our wish granting volunteers, event volunteers, friends from SAP, students from Temple and Widener and the list goes on and on...

Finally, we would like to give another HUGE THANK YOU to the Philadelphia Zoo and how grateful we are to have the walk there for the 4th year in a row!

Again, thank you all so much for coming out and making the 2017 Philadelphia Walk for Wishes one to remember and don’t forget, you still have time to raise funds! Donations to all 3e walk events will not close until November 8th so keep them coming! We are currently at having raised enough to grant 10 wishes so we are only 2 wishes away from our goal! See you next year Philadelphia...

And now let's talk about Walk for Wishes Susquehanna Valley happening on the 29th at Zoo America!

Registration is still open for walk #2 and you can help us raise awareness and funds for local children! Did you know that our presenting sponsor Cheap Caribbean has kicked in a team fundraising grand prize? They are offering an all-expense paid trip for 2 to Playa del Carmen! Any teams who raise $5,000 or more will qualify to enter and you have until our Walk for Wishes in Delaware closes to raise that money! Go to your participant center to get started and we can't wait to see you Sunday!
