    The Best Holiday Gifts of 2017

    Join the NBC Connecticut team as they loop around Lake Compounce for Make-A-Wish. The 2017 Walk for Wishes is on Saturday, May 13, 2017. The three mile walk around the park begins at 9:00 a.m. Following the walk, watch an exciting “wish celebration,” where a child’s wish will be granted, live! REGISTRATION IS FREE! There is a free pancake breakfast, children’s activities, giveaways, snacks, DJ, and a prize drawing! There are also great fundraising incentives. All individual participants who raise $30 will receive a Walk for Wishes T-shirt. All individual participants who raise $100 receive free admission to Lake Compounce.

    - All families who raise $350 receive free admission for 4 to Lake Compounce.

    Additional Lake Compounce tickets will be available for purchase the day of the Walk at a reduced rate (to be determined that day). Make-A-Wish merchandise and prize drawing tickets will also be available for purchase.

    Every 35 minutes, Make-A-Wish grants the wish of an eligible child with a life-threatening medical condition.

    In January, NBC Connecticut connected you with Make-A-Wish for its annual ‘Miles for Smiles’ campaign. Make-A-Wish says it receives travel-related wishes more than any other type of wish. Considering the over 2.5 MILLION miles and $4,500 in cash donations the campaign reined in, many kids can have their travel-wish granted!
