When You Wish Upon a Star launches Superhero Wish Walk

Tue, May 11th, 2021

The children's charity launch virtual event to fund Wishes still on hold

 Children’s Wish-granting charity, When You Wish Upon a Star have launched their first Superhero Wish Walk!

They are calling for supporters across the UK to challenge themselves to walk whatever distance they choose, wherever they like, on Friday 25th June, to raise money to grant Wishes to their Superhero Wish Children living with life threatening illnesses. Don’t worry, if you can’t join on the 25th, you can hold your walk anytime in June instead.

As part of the challenge, people across the UK are being encouraged to dress up as their own Superheroes, whether this a real life Superhero, such as a parent, friend or sports star, or a Superhero character, such as Batman or Wonder Woman – encouraged but not compulsory!

Your Superhero Wish Walk can be however long, and wherever you like – whether you choose laps around the local park or a 10K hike in the hills, no matter wherever or however you complete your walk, you will be granting Wishes with every step.

When You Wish Upon a Star believes that their Wish Children are real life Superheroes – they face struggles that many of us simply cannot imagine, and they face their daily fight with incredible strength and bravery. With every step you take on our Superhero Wish Walk, and every penny you raise, you will help to grant not just a Wish, but a magical memory that will be treasured forever, and help a Wish Child and their family get through their most difficult moments.
