Join KMVT and Make-A-Wish Idaho to raise $35K for wish kids
This year’s fifth annual Walk for Wishes event will be done virtually
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) - This year’s Magic Valley Walk for Wishes virtual event aims to raise $35,000 to grant wishes for children with critical illnesses.
The 5th Annual Walk for Wishes Magic Valley event will be held Saturday at 10 a.m. Due to the COVID-19, the event will take place virtually with each participant walking separately in their own neighborhood, on a nature trail, on a treadmill at home or wherever they might choose. Participants will be asked to post themselves walking on social media and to tag Make-A-Wish Idaho in order to help raise awareness for wish kids who have had their wishes postponed.
On Friday, KMVT will be hosting a telethon from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. during this time KMVT will post a phone number people can call to donate.
As of Tuesday morning, more than $19,000 had been raised toward the goal. So far, 45 people and 10 teams are participating.
Past events in Twin Falls took place at the Visitors Center.
Money raised through this event go to grant wishes like 13-year-old Shawn, who was recently given a pedicab to help him enjoy bike ride in comfort and safety.
Walk for Wishes Magic Valley is an event that celebrates wishes that have been granted in Idaho while raising funds for future wishes.
People can sign up as a sponsor, create a walk team or volunteer. You can sign up today as a sponsor, walk team or volunteer. There is no registration fee; though Make-A-Wish Idaho asks participants to raise $100 or more to help grant wishes to more Idaho wish kids.
