Make-A-Wish Illinois' Walk for Wishes 2016

It's time to grant some wishes at this weekend's Walk for Wishes 2016!
Occurring in Elk Grove Village, the event's new Chicagoland location, the walk & run welcomes individuals, families, wish children and corporations to celebrate life and turn dreams into reality for Illinois children with life-threatening diseases. Make a donation, start or join a team, and get ready for a fun time at the Wish Alumni's largest gathering in Illinois!

This family-friendly event is sure to be nothing short of a magical day. With festivities kicking off bright and early at 8am, participants have plenty of time to walk or run, cross that finish line, and enjoy refreshments and live entertainment. Don't forget to sport your best costume!

As a Chi Omega alumni, I absolutely loved that our philanthropy was the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The feeling of helping a child achieve their wish was bliss. Being active with the organization was honestly one of the top reasons that I choose Chi Omega and couldn't be more proud to be apart of the effort to grant over 13,000 wishes to date. Now that I have graduated, participating in and spreading the word about the foundation's annual Walk for Wishes is a great way to stay connected.

Help spread the word on social media about the event and childhood cancer awareness month by using #Walk4WishesChi and #CCAM!
