The University of Maine at Presque Isle will host a Make-a-Wish Walk on Thursday, September 25th starting at 6 p.m. in the Campus Center’s Multi-Purpose Room. Check-in and on-site registration begins at 5 p.m.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants the wishes of Maine children with life-threatening medical conditions. Since 1992, they have granted more than 1,100 wishes to Maine children. On average, each wish granted to a Maine child costs $6,000 and one occurs every five days.

This event is open to the public. Adults raising at least $100 and youths under 18 raising at least $50 will receive a free “Walk For Wishes” t-shirt.
