Children over the age of 2˝ , and under the age of 18, must be referred to the Foundation by one of 4 sources: the child, the child’s parent or legal guardian, the treating medical professional, or a social worker. They are then determined to be medically eligible for a wish by their physician. The child's treating physician makes the final determination of whether a child's medical condition qualifies him or her for a wish
Walk for Wishes® is a family-friendly, community walk that benefits Make-A-Wish® Central and Western North Carolina. Participants may walk individually, or form a team with friends, family and colleagues to support Make-A-Wish's mission to grant the wishes of local children with life-threatening medical conditions. Participants will walk arm in arm with wish children and their families to celebrate hope, strength and joy that a child's one true wish captures. Walk for Wishes provides an opportunity for our community to raise funds and share in the power of not just one, but every wish!
