Birthday Wishes, a New England and New York based non-profit organization, that brings the magic and joy of birthday parties to thousands of homeless children and their families each year, is holding its 11th annual “Walk for Birthdays” (formerly CakeWalk) Fundraiser, which is one of the organization’s signature fundraising events.
“Walk for Birthdays” is a hybrid event, where participants can walk together on Sunday, June 12 or on their own beforehand. After the walk, all registrants are invited to the Walker Appreciation Party hosted by DJ Al Martinez featuring JP Honk Band, Davey the Clown, cookie decorating with Merry Go Sweets, face painting with Wonderland Faces, snowmaking with Party with Me!, spray art with S.O.M. Vibes Studio, crafts with the Metrowest Mamas, bounce house, food, raffle and so much more!
At the in-person event, participants will also have the opportunity to build a Birthday-in-a-Box at our first community Birthday-in-a-Box build. Our goal is to build 200 boxes to distribute to our August birthday kids!
This event is to raise much-needed funds and awareness of the Birthday Wishes mission and is a great way to bring joy to a homeless child. Every mile walked (or jogged, biked, etc.) and every dollar raised by participants will be used to deliver birthday celebrations – and the gift of hope – to children who would otherwise miss out on this experience. For additional information, visit www.birthdaywishes.org.
