Make-A-Wish Dream Team

I have taken on a very personal and challenging goal for myself.  I have committed to walk the Mercedes Half-Marathon on February 14th, 2010 in Birmingham.  I will be walking the half-marathon as a member of the Make-A-Wish Foundation® Dream Team. I am aiming to raise $100.00 for every mile that I walk, for a goal of $1,300 and hopefully more!

The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children between the ages of 2½ -18 with life threatening medical conditions and brings hope, strength, and joy into their lives.  Each wish granted brings happiness to the children and their families at a time when they need it most!  The average cost of a wish is $6,700, with many wishes costing much more.  Presently there are over 100 children in Alabama waiting to have their wishes granted.  So, as you can see, the money that you are able to donate will greatly help fulfill the dreams of these precious children and make their wishes come true. 

The children’s wishes vary from a trip to Disney World or Hawaii, to meeting Hannah Montana or their favorite Sports Figure.  They wish for shopping sprees, for a new playhouse or even to be an astronaut or scientist!  These wishes can not be granted without the help of people like you!

Here is some information about the Make-A-Wish Foundation and a few examples of the many wishes that are granted every day:
