WALK BLOG #12- Philly Wish Walk Wrap-Up

Philadelphia Walk for Wishes
If you are feeling anything like the team here at Make-A-Wish® Philadelphia, Northern Delaware and Susquehanna Valley, you are still recuperating from a fun-filled day at the Philadelphia Zoo with all of our Make-A-Wish friends and family.

First and foremost, we would like to thank each and every one of you that made this day possible.  Thank you to the participants who raised money and spent your time with us on Sunday morning.  Thank you to everyone who spent the last few months fundraising and nagging friends, family and coworkers for this amazing cause.  Thank you to the volunteers who showed up before the sun came up, and walked around a dark zoo full of animals helping us get ready.  Thank you to every sponsor that helped to make this day possible, and everyone that donated goodies to us on Sunday.  Thank you for the entertainment that put smiles on the faces of so many children and wish children that day.  We truly appreciate the time and effort that this community put into Walk for Wishes this year at the Philadelphia Zoo, and because of all of you we had over 1500 participants this year and we raised over $120,000.00.  That is truly incredible.  We cannot wait to grant more wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions, and you have helped us to continue to make that possible. 

We hope you enjoyed a day full of listening to inspiring stories from our very own wish families, playing games and doing crafts with and A.C. Moore, crossing fingers to win raffle baskets donated from all over the place, dancing with the Mummer’s Aqua String Band, drinking coffee from our friends at Greenstreet Coffee, and making faces at lions and tigers and bears courtesy of the Philadelphia Zoo.  We would love to see your faces again before next fall, so make sure to keep in touch with us via social media and email for upcoming events and fundraisers!  Please reach out to us as well so we can send you information or supplies for any of your own fundraising needs!  We look forward to seeing you all again very soon!    

We would love for you to post your favorite Walk pictures to our social media pages and tag us!  If you have any questions at all, shoot us an email at  Thank you for your fundraising efforts, and we look forward to seeing you next year!
