I just got home from the 2012 Walk for Wishes, a fundraising event for the Michigan Make A Wish Foundation. It was held at the Detroit Zoo, 2,800 walkers were there, the animals were out (sorry no pics). It is roughly a 2 1/2 mile walk around the zoo. Wholefoods provided the walkers breakfast and Cosi provided the lunches.
I have participated in events like this in the past, but I was inspired by an article in Outdoor Athlete titled "12 T-Shirts". The author participated in one physically active event a month for one year, some charitable, some not and collected 12 t-shirts. These events always give t-shirts to the participants. I was proud to put on my first t-shirt and support a good cause.
The Michigan Make A Wish Foundation has granted 7,000 wishes for Michigan Children.
