South Carolina Walk For Wishes Benefits Make-A-Wish

Posted in Donate Car South Carolina News, Tuesday, April 8, 2014

What’s better than getting out and enjoying some exercise in the fresh spring air? Doing so while helping to raise money for Make-A-Wish South Carolina! Walk For Wishes, April 26 at Cherry Park in Rock Hill, is a community-wide fundraising effort and celebration to grant the wishes of local children facing life-threatening medical conditions.

The walk starts at 10 a.m. with check-in at 9 a.m. and the opening ceremonies beginning at 9:45. The walk is a 5K, family-friendly event where you can walk as an individual, family or team to raise money for Make-A-Wish South Carolina. Forming a corporate or community walk team is easy and is guaranteed to be a fun and rewarding experience for your company or civic group. Gather your family for a fun-filled way to help activate our mission in the local community. The event is great for walkers of any age: Strollers, wheelchairs and wagons are all welcome!

Participants can do that by using innovative online fundraising tools to manage their donations, as well as asking friends and family for their support.

Registering as an individual walker is $15, while the cost is $10 per walker if you walk as a team or family. Kids 12 years old and under walk for free. You can register online, as well as make a donation to support the event or an individual walker if you aren’t able to attend.

There are also sponsorship opportunities available; contact Jessica Bursack at 864-250-0702 or by e-mail at jbursack@sc.wish.org for more information.

Can’t Make The Walk? You Can Still Help Make-A-Wish

There are ways you can help Make-A-Wish South Carolina, without going to the Walk For Wishes. One way is to donate airline miles to help send Wish Kids and their families on their wish trips. Another way is to donate an unwanted vehicle to Wheels For Wishes benefiting Make-A-Wish South Carolina. Donating a vehicle helps kids in Columbia, Charleston and throughout the Palmetto State. But it also saves you time and money that you would otherwise spend on getting rid of an unwanted vehicle. That unwanted vehicle will be transformed into a wish for a local child and gives you a great tax deduction at the same time. Wheels For Wishes is an IRS-registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and your donation is 100 percent tax deductible. Your car can make a wish come true!

To donate a vehicle to Wheels For Wishes, please call us at 1-855-502-9474, or fill out our easy online vehicle donation form. You will feel great about what your old car can do for a local child!
