16th annual Walk for Wishes raises funds to help children's wishes come true

CORNING, N.Y. - Chilly weather didn't put a damper on the 16th annual walk for Wishes fundraiser. Corning's Centerway Square was the site of pumpkin painting, a visit from therapy mini-horses and a ​​​​zumba warm up.

Walk for Wishes is a partnership with the Make-A-Wish foundation to raise money to grant wishes for eligible children. 

Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. 

Kristen Henry, marketing manager for Make-A-Wish says "Our goal overall is to reach every eligible child, so we know the impact that a wish can have on families and kids so we just want to make sure that everybody gets their wish and it requires doing events like this and raising funds."
