October 16: Wishmaker Walk for Wishes

On October 16th, 2010, we put feet on New West’s streets with the 6th Annual Children’s Wish Foundation’s “Wishmaker Walk for Wishes!” 
Registration will take place at the Heritage Grill on the corner of Columbia and Church Street at 11 am and the walk will start at 12 pm.

This no barrier, fun filled, national event raises funds for children between the ages of 3 and 17 who are suffering from life-threatening illnesses, so they may experience a brighter day and have a smile in their heart.  The Children’s Wish Foundation has taken on this mission since 1984,
yet there is still so much work to do.

For the past 5 years, the Wishmaker Walk for Wishes has taken place in Vancouver, however, seeing that New Westminster is fast becoming a vibrant, walkable community, it was time to get out on the streets and shine!  Also, a first for any city, New Westminster’s Walk for Wishes will feature a pre-Halloween “Trick or Treat” with tremendous support from the local business community.  Kids of all ages will experience candy, treats and hot chocolate at various stops along their route.  There will also be exciting performances at Hyack Spirit Square by the Vancouver Circus School and local rock and blues band Foster Child.

We can all win, with your support in raising funds and helping us show that New Westminster is a healthy, vibrant community.   Please support us by joining the Wishmaker Walk for Wishes on October 16th, 2010.  It would be wonderful to see your team out on the street showing the community that we have a healthy Downtown New Westminster and that it has a heart too.

We look forward to seeing you there, thank-you for your support!
