Team WISHES & MORE

October 9, 2016 @ 7:00 am - 12:00 pm

Share

Are you thinking about signing up for a marathon this year?  Or maybe it’s not a marathon…but it’s something big for you and it would truly be a huge accomplishment to achieve your goal of crossing the finish line?  Perhaps you already did sign up and you’re seeking motivation in order to accomplish your goal?  We would love to support you in your endeavor and I bet you know a lot of people who would love to support you as well, but just don’t know how.

This is where TEAM WISHES & MORE comes in!

By joining the team, you will agree to fundraise for Wishes & More by getting people to pledge money for you as you train and to celebrate your huge accomplishment!  We will support you by helping you set up a fundraising page and providing language and photos for you to encourage your network to give.  We will also provide you with a WAM Hero T-shirt to proudly display your Superhero Powers on race day!

 

Previous Team Wishes & More participants had this to say:

“The marathon was awesome and meeting Riley and his parents was inspiring. What a great kid and family. Tying in Wishes & More made my marathon a better experience. I’m really glad   that (my friend) put me in touch with you and I’m glad my run ended up being more than just about me. Riley and his family being there was special and I could sense how important Wishes   & More has been and continues to be for them. I didn’t have any doubts that I was doing the right thing, but after seeing them I was on cloud nine about what just took place. My race was WAY better than I expected – I ran faster than I hoped, the crowd support lifted my spirits the entire way, the beautiful day made me happy to be running and meeting Riley just confirmed that this will be one of my favorite days ever.”  – Mike

“The marathon kicked my butt.  Hit the wall at mile 22 and battled my way to the finish line.  I thought about Riley and the rest of the kids that you guys help during that struggle.  I did get a chance to meet them.  I was with my girlfriend and dad.  They were the sweetest family with the sweetest little kids.  It was truly one of the best experiences I’ve had.  So happy to run on behalf of kids and families going through such difficult times.” – Ben

“It was a great experience to fundraise for WAM for this event.  Everything went really smoothly and you were great about keeping me informed and staying in touch.  I put up several Facebook posts and sent out some emails, and my friends and family and coworkers seemed to really like the concept of fundraising by running, and were interested to hear about your organization. It was so great to meet Riley and his family.  I’m a big Wild fan so I brought him a Wild puck.  Such cute kids and such a nice couple!  It was really rewarding and inspiring to meet them!  Definitely a great way to cap off the event.”  – Kate
