1st Annual Heroes Walk/Run Race Description


A Wish Come True is the oldest wish granting organization in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. We grants wishes to children who are suffering from a life threatening illness. Family, friends and support teams are invited to this fun filled and celebratory event, as we highlight our Wish Kids and their families as the real super heroes they truly are!  Our job on this walk is to pay it forward so others can have amazing family support trips.  

Please join us to walk or run at our 1st Annual Heroes Walk/Run which will take place on Saturday, September 21st at Warwick City Park. This superhero-themed event is going to be a fun, family-friendly event, with something for everyone! Funds raised during this event will be allocated towards our upcoming Wishes.
