How it works

Joining Team Wish

Sign up for the event through the event's official website.

Personalise your fundraising page with your story of why you're taking on the challenge. Then share it with friends and family, collect donations and help make wishes come true. Every dollar counts!

Give it your best, have fun and know that you're part of the amazing team making wishes come true for sick kids across the country.

I don’t think people realise how important wishes are for kids. They are going through hell and it gives them a distraction and something to look forward to.
