About Walk For Wishes

Walk For Wishes® in Northwest Arkansas is a community-wide celebration and effort to grant wishes for local children with life-threatening medical conditions. Walkers will fundraise prior to the Walk For Wishes then join wish children, families and other enthusiastic supporters of our mission on the day of the event! Make your walk more meaningful by forming a team of your family, friends, colleagues or community group. Following the two mile walk, activities will include inflatable games, crafts, magicians, face painting, photo booth fun, music and more.

When: May 7th, 2016, 9 a.m.-12 p.m.

Where: Arvest Ballpark, Springdale, AR
