Wishmaker Walk for Wishes

Wishmaker Walk is a fun-filled walk for all ages in support of Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada. By walking together and raising funds you will help us grant over 1,000 wishes a year– That means your support will help Children’s Wish grant more than three heartfelt wishes a day!  So this year, come walk with us and step into the magic of a wish.

Why walk?

The Impact of a Wish

For a child and family living with a life-threatening illness, “normal” means frequent trips to the emergency department, numerous missed days at school and at work, and constant bouts of pain and anxiety. Each granted wish makes a difference:

  • The excitement of anticipating a wish can have a positive effect on healing.
  • The incredible joy of a wish come true renews energy and hope in a child and family.
  • The wishes we grant provide respite for a child and family, and create lasting memories.

School Program

Kids Helping Kids

When children are provided with the opportunity to exercise their philanthropic muscles, they learn the importance of compassion, charity, and community involvement. The Children’s Wish Wishmaker School Program is a meaningful way for students to make a difference in another child’s life.


The Children’s Wish Wishmaker School Program will run from September  to June, and will give schools complete flexibility in how they choose to fundraise throughout the school year.


Consider a school-wide walk, classroom bake sale, or neighbourhood car wash. Pump up school spirit with a dance-a-thon! Engage the parent community with a raffle or silent auction. Or keep it simple with a quick and easy Toonie drive. There are so many fun possibilities!

Fabulous Incentives and Prizes *


  • Each school earns back 20% of the funds they raise.*
  • The highest earning class in each school wins a pizza party.
  • All participating schools in the province are entered into a draw for a $400 VISA gift card.

* If gross fundraising receipts in the province are less than the total value of fundraising incentives, The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada reserves the right to withhold said incentives in favor of donations being used for wish granting.

* The 20% back is not applicable for the Tape-a-toonie program
