Tucker Hibbert is continuing his efforts to raise money for Make-A-Wish® Minnesota by leading a team at the 2018 Walk for Wishes® Twin Cities event. For the third consecutive year, Hibbert is bringing together fans, friends and family to join Team 68 and help grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses.
“Raising money for Make-A-Wish Minnesota through Walk for Wishes is really turning into a fun tradition for me and my fans,” Hibbert said. “After my first experience helping grant a wish through Make-A-Wish in 2015, I knew I wanted to get more involved with the organization. Walk for Wishes has provided me the opportunity to bring together people and raise money for a great cause. It’s been awesome to see how excited people are to get involved. The whole experience of building the team, getting ready for the event and the actual walk itself has definitely been a highlight of my year since we started doing this.”
Since 2016, Hibbert’s Team 68 has raised over $21,000 for Make-A-Wish Minnesota through the Walk for Wishes event.
“Tucker and all of those who join Team 68 help make life-changing wishes come true. We’re so thankful for this team – their support makes all the difference to Minnesota kids facing the biggest challenge of their life,” said Mia Broos Hoagberg, President and CEO of Make-A-Wish Minnesota. “We’re now studying how wishes can have a long-term impact on very sick kids. Anticipating a wish can provide the spark of hope so often missing during a critical illness. Wishes help kids feel better, and sometimes even help them get better.”
The 2018 Walk for Wishes Twin Cites 1-mile walk and 5K run will take place the morning of Saturday, August 4 at Minnehaha Park in Minneapolis. A $20 donation registers you for the event and reserves your Team 68 Walk for Wishes t-shirt. People who join the team but are unable to attend the event will still receive the t-shirt to acknowledge their contribution. All money raised goes directly to Make-A-Wish Minnesota.
