Garrett Hemann Robertson P.C. sponsors the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s 2014 “Walk for Wishes.”

On April 26, 2014 at Salem’s Riverfront Park, Garrett Hemann Robertson P.C.’s shareholder and Make-A-Wish® Oregon’s Ambassador Board member, Luke Reese, will be joining family, friends and colleagues for the foundation’s annual Walk for Wishes.  This year’s walk will highlight one of the many children who benefit from the Make-A-Wish®.  Ten-year-old Portland resident, Destiny, has a rare and incurable metabolic disorder known as NKH, which affects her brain functions.  Even smiling is difficult.  Last October, Destiny was connected with a woman from Michigan named Cassie through a website that matches runners with those who cannot run.  Since then, Destiny and Cassie have developed a special bond, and Cassie has committed to dedicating at least one 5k run a month to Destiny.  It’s a commitment that has changed both of their lives.  Destiny’s one true wish was to meet her hero, Cassie, and participate in a 5k together.  On April 26th, Destiny’s wish will come true when she and Cassie lead the Walk for Wishes.

In addition to sponsoring the Walk for Wishes, GHR is encouraging employees to share Luke’s passion of making wishes come true for children with life-threatening medical conditions by sponsoring a “Jeans for Wishes” week April 21-25, 2014.  Employees who donate $20 to the Make-A-Wish will be allowed to dress casual throughout the work week.

We invite you to join hundreds of local Make-A-Wish supporters for the 2014 Walk for Wishes.  If you would like to participate, follow this link to the registration page:  http://walkforwishes.kintera.org/2014.
