Bring the family out to Marymoor Park in Redmond on Aug. 14 to take part in the Make-A-Wish Foundation's Walk for Wishes -- and raise money so that the foundation can grant the wishes of 200 children with life-threatening medical conditions.
The foundation's Northwest chapter has granted the wishes of hundreds of kids over its 25-year history, and several of those kids will attend the walk, including Ella Trout, a 12-year-old who was diagnosed with a brain tumor at 8 months. Ella will sing "It's a Small World After All" after the walk (her wish was to go to Disneyland).
The 5K walk includes refreshments, activities for the kids, and a performance by Seattle's rock 'n' roll band for kids, The Not-Its!
Sunday, Aug. 14, at Marymoor Park in Redmond. Check-in 8:45 a.m., walk 9:30 a.m. The top fundraiser from across Make-A-Wish's territory will win two round-trip tickets on Alaska Airlines and a 7-night cruise aboard the Royal Caribbean. Register here.
