I have fundraised for Make-A-Wish Michigan in the past by riding 5 years in a row, 300 miles over 3 days, via their Wish-A-Mile bike event. This year I will take on my first full marathon in honor of all those wish kids that cannot run, but desperately wish they could. Because when we were children, we ran for fun and were carefree.
Make-A-Wish Michigan grants the wishes of children in Michigan communities with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. We grant about one wish per day for a child with a life-threatening medical condition.
Our goal is to raise enough money through the Detroit Free Press/Chemical Bank Marathon to grant a wish to a Michigan child - $10,000!
