This year’s annual Walk For Wishes fundraising walk was a huge success! Thank you to everyone who’s banded together with Team Chloe to raise more than $14,000 this year to help make wishes come true for kids fighting serious illnesses.

The Nelson team has joined Make-A-Wish Foundation‘s annual Walk For Wishes for 6 years now thanks to the team leadership of Joe Madigan, Executive Vice President, and his family. When Joe’s daughter Chloe was granted a wish through the Make-A-Wish Foundation six years ago, the Madigan family made it their mission to give back to the foundation by participating in the annual Walk for Wishes. Team Chloe’s efforts have raised approximately $140,000 thus far, much with the support of the Nelson community. This year, Walk For Wishes participants in the East Bay raised more than $70,000 total for Make-A-Wish. That’s a lot of wishes come true for kids fighting serious illnesses!

Nelson team members have been supporting the Make-A-Wish Foundation‘s annual Walk For Wishes for 6 years now and this year’s walk took place Saturday, August 20th, at St. Mary’s College. 100% of the proceeds were donated to the Make-A-Wish foundation to help fund wishes for children fighting serious illnesses.

Here are a few photos from the event, with smiling participants bringing the typical Nelson positive energy to the day:
