WALK BLOG #13- Harrisburg Wish Walk Wrap-Up

5th Annual Harrisburg Walk for Wishes
Every year, it is hard to believe that Walk for Wishes® comes and goes so quickly. After months of planning, fundraising and preparing for the big day, just like that it is over and the planning for next year begins! The best part of the day is getting to spend time with so many incredible and inspiring people that are a part of the Make-A-Wish community. We couldn’t have asked for better company and support at Walk for Wishes in City Island this year.

Walk for Wishes Sunday was a crisp fall morning filled with fun fall essentials: pumpkin bowling, face painting, a coloring station, Wegmans maple donuts and pumpkin muffins, Blue Bunny Ice Cream, coffee from Sheetz to warm us up, great music from our friends at 30 West Entertainment and a plethora of raffles from local businesses.  Add in a couple hundred amazing individuals, an inspiring story told by wish child Allison, and a Disney Cruise wish reveal to Logan, and we had the perfect morning. 

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 and chilly City Island to assist in the set up.  Thank you to every sponsor that helped to make this day possible, and everyone that donated supplies 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 City Island, and because of all of you we had over 250 participants this year and we raised over $38,000.00.  That is truly incredible.  We cannot wait to grant more wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions, and you have helped us to continue to make that possible. 

We hope you enjoyed the day as much as we did, and we look forward to seeing you all again very soon, so make sure to keep in touch with us via social media, email and our website for upcoming events and fundraisers!  Please reach out to us so we can send you information or supplies for any of your fundraising needs! Best Wishes and Happy Fall!   

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!
