Yesterday, Bush Park hosted a benefit walk/run that raised $32,083 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The Make-A-Wish Foundation is a non-profit charity organization that grants wishes to children suffering from life-threatening medical conditions. Wishes are categorized into (1) I wish to go..., (2) I wish to meet..., (3) I wish to be... and (4) I wish to have... . Thanks to the dedication of benefit participants and generous donations, the organization has been enabled to grant a wish every 40 minutes.
