The 2017 Walk for Wishes in Philly will take place at the Philadelphia Zoo on Sunday, Oct. 8. All ages are invited to walk the one-mile course, past the animal enclosures.
The walk raises funds for Make-A-Wish, which aims to grant the wish of every child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition.
"In the United States and its territories, on average, a wish is granted every 34 minutes," states the foundation's website.
There is a registration fee of $25 for adult walkers and a $5 fee for those age 2-11. The fee includes entertainment, light refreshments and all-day admission to the Philadelphia Zoo, which be open until 5 p.m.
Participants who raise $50 or more (including registration fee) will be guaranteed an event T-shirt.
