Walk for Wishes returns to Raley Field

The Make-a-Wish Foundation’s Walk for Wishes is returning to Sacramento for its 14th annual fundraising event.

Make-a-Wish seeks to help children in need make their wishes come true. This year’s Walk for Wishes will be held at Raley field. Local Wish Kids Noah and Zoe will be leading the parade, which kicks off a day of family-friendly activities. 

Noah is a typical twelve-year-old boy who enjoys sports and outdoor activities like hiking and fishing. He has also been fighting leukemia for three years. When Make-a-Wish asked Noah what his one true wish would be, he did not hesitate: he wanted to go to New York City. During his trip to the Big Apple, Noah, an avid Yankee’s fan, plans on seeing a game as well as visiting Ground Zero, the Bronx Zoo and Central Park.

Five-year-old Zoe’s wish was to be princess for a day. Zoe, like Noah, is battling leukemia. The Northeastern California Make-a-Wish foundation granted its 4,000th wish when it gave Zoe her dream of royalty for a day. She received her day of pampering in 2012, and she will join Noah at this year’s Walk for Wishes as a Walk Ambassador.

To show support for Noah, Zoe, and other local children in need, Walk for Wishes participants can register through the Make-a-Wish Foundation’s website. People can also sponsor certain walkers or give general donations to the foundation.
