Ways to get involved

Take part: Join the ride of a lifetime to bring wishes to sick children.

Bays' Wish is an exclusive ride which will tour some of Victoria's best cycling roads from 17-21 March 2020. Starting out in Albury, the route covers more than 600kms of awe-inspiring trails to Melbourne, with a mix of challenging elevations and unforgettable scenery along the way.

The best part is every kilometre you ride helps Make-A-Wish create wishes for sick kids like Bays, whose brave battle against critical illness was cut tragically short. His family created this event in his honour. Now in its second year and with just 50 places available in 2020, don't miss out on this unique and inspirational event.

Across Australia, a number of our volunteer branches join forces to host major fundraising events. These events are a great opportunity to meet the local #WishForce and provide a platform to create brand and partnership awareness.

For each of these events there is the opportunity to donate prizes, sponsor and, of course, attend.

The Sydney Wish Wonderland Gala Ball this year will be extra special as we will be fulfilling Breanna’s wish to event manage her own Gala Ball. This is a unique opportunity to be part of a wish.

April 29 is World Wish Day! It's the day we celebrate the first wish granted by Make-A-Wish.
