Help make wishes come true one step at a time at the 6th Annual Walk For Wishes® 5K Walk/Run at Florida Gulf Coast University on Saturday, February 27, 2016.

More than 750 walkers and runners turned their steps into wishes at the 5th Annual Walk For Wishes® on Saturday, April 18, 2015. ABC7 Morning News reporter Amy Sedlacek hosted the event at Florida Gulf Coast University in Fort Myers. Wish kid Blake and his family encouraged participants with the story of his wish to go to Walt Disney World®, and several other wish children joined in the fun to help grant more wishes. After the 5K, everyone enjoyed Family Fun Day activities and a light breakfast. In one feel-good morning of fun and fitness, more than $85,000 was raised which will grant the incredible wishes of 17 children facing life-threatening medical conditions in Southwest Florida.

You can join in the fun! Participate as an individual or get together with your family, friends and/or colleagues to start your own team. By participating in the Walk For Wishes in Collier/Lee County you can help bring the life-changing impact of a wish to children battling life-threatening medical conditions in our community.
