More than 1,200 walkers and runners turned their steps into wishes at the 6th Annual Walk For Wishes® on Saturday, February 27, 2016. WINK News reporter Stephanie Susskind hosted the event at Florida Gulf Coast University in Fort Myers. Wish kid Leo encouraged participants with the story of his wish to go fishing with Bass2Billfish Peter Miller, 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 $95,000 was raised which will grant the incredible wishes of 19 children facing life-threatening medical conditions in Southwest Florida.
