Inaugural “Walk for Wishes” to benefit Make-A-Wish

The Office of Student Activities and the Office of Student Leadership and Civic Engagement at Georgia Southern University are sponsors of the inaugural Statesboro Walk for Wishes to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Georgia and Alabama. The event will be held Saturday, Sept. 29, beginning at 10 a.m. at the Recreation Activity Center (RAC).

Walkers can participate individually or team up with family, friends, classmates and co-workers. The course is a 1.07 mile loop around the multiplex, starting and finishing at the RAC Pavilion. A finish line celebration will feature refreshments and activities for children.

The goal of the Walk for Wishes is to raise money to grant wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions.

‘The Walk for Wishes fundraiser is an easy way for student organizations to come together and support one cause,” said Bill Pickett, director of student activities.

Pre-registration is encouraged. Pre-registration requires a donation of at least $10 per student, $15 per person or $30 for a family of four. Registration is also welcome at the event for an additional $5 per person donation.

To register, contact Jean Doliber with the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Georgia and Alabama at 912-330-0476 or
