Make-A-Wish Foundation "Walk for Wishes 2010"

The Arizona Diamondbacks and presented the 6th Annual Walk for Wishes®, Saturday,  March 13, 2010 at Kiwanis Park in Tempe to a huge turnout of families (and their pets).

Individuals and teams participated in the 5K and the 1-mile family fun run. Each participant who registered received a Walk For Wishes T-shirt, a goodie bag and one raffle ticket. Registered participants also received a Diamondbacks ticket to be redeemed online for the Make-A-Wish game in April 2010.


More than 1000 enthusiastic runners and walkers showed up on the most beautiful Arizona day of the year, to help raise $75,000 to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Arizona.


A mascot Olympics including Baxter the Bobcat from the Arizona Diamondbacks took place after the big event along with local catering business Put a Fork In It! serving hungry participants hundreds of pancakes.  The group called Rock Boot Camp performed, kids had their faces painted, jumped on bouncy houses, mingled with clowns, enjoyed the dj and hoola-hooped around the park.


Registration and pancakes began at 7:00 a.m. and the run kicked off at 8:30 a.m.
