Greg Michaels: Make A Wish Walk in Augusta This Morning

What a beautiful morning for a walk, huh? And to walk for a good cause even better. This morning I helped in launching the first Augusta ‘Make A Wish’ walk in some time. It was done in years past, but fizzled away for some reason but the walk has been re-organized, re-energized and is happening again.

‘Make A Wish’ is an organization that grants wishes to children with life threatening medical conditions, not just children with a terminal diagnosis. Wishes rage from the grandest to the most simple and modest. Some choose Disney World like a friend of mine’s son did, I talked with one grandmother of a child whose wish it was to meet Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen back in 1999. I know of one child whose wish it was to light a city Christmas Tree. Children’s wishes vary greatly.

In the pre-walk announcements I heard it said that in Maine raised in just a few walks, Make A Wish raised about $100,000. Cool beans, all. It’s because of people you kids with with life threatening medical conditions can enjoy some time in an otherwise traumatic time.

I met Conjuring Carroll a magician, entertainer and balloon artist. He’s great with kids and even made me a Moose balloon.

Since 1992, over 20 years, Make A Wish in Maine has granted more than 1090 wishes at an average of $6000 a wish. So your generosity is needed and much appreciated. For more information on Make A Wish you can call, 1-800-491-3171 or visit their website.You can also mail your donation to:
