It was a beautiful morning to grant wishes and change lives. More than 1,800 people participated in the 8th Annual Walk for Wishes 5K Walk/Run on Saturday, February 4, 2017 at Markham Park. Channel 7 morning reporter, Alex De Armas energized the group as the event host. Participants were invited to stick around after the event for a family fun day complete with face painting, mascot appearances, ice cream and various kids attractions. In all, more than $205,000 were raised, which will grant the wishes of 41 amazing children in our Southern Florida community.
