Chil­dren’s Wish Wish­maker Walks

The Central Voice - - Editorial -

It’s time once again for the Chil­dren’s Wish Foun­da­tion Wish­maker Walks across the prov­ince.

Each fall, vol­un­teers and sup­port­ers gather to raise money to grant the most heart­felt wishes for chil­dren be­tween the ages of three and 17 who are di­ag­nosed with life-threat­en­ing ill­nesses.

The Chil­dren’s Wish Foun­da­tion of Canada is the largest and only all-Cana­dian wish grant­ing char­ity. For more than 30 years, Chil­dren’s Wish has granted wishes to more than 25,000 chil­dren and their fam­i­lies – that’s three wishes each and every day, all year long - and with your help, they can con­tinue to put smiles on the faces of sick chil­dren in your com­mu­ni­ties and across the prov­ince.

Here’s a list of Wish­maker Walks through­out Cen­tral New­found­land.
