The public is being invited to participate in the 7th annual Walk for Wishes fundraiser this Saturday at Mooney Park in Fairview Heights.  It had formerly been held at St. Clair Square.  The event is a benefit for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which has granted more than 10,000 wishes to children in Illinois since 1985.

Everyone who runs or walks gets a t-shirt and is registered for door prizes.  Norma Glazebrook of Godfrey says there are walkers and runners.

Glazebrook comments

Check-in time is 8am with a 9:00 start for runners.  Walkers check in at 9:00 and start at 10:00.  It costs $10 for children 17 and under to participate.  $20 for everyone else walking and $25 if you are running.  For more information, call 402-1986, or follow the link
