Granting wishes and smiles

For 25 years the Exploits Valley subchapter of the Children’s Wish Foundation has been holding walks to raise funds to help grant wishes for children with life-threatening illnesses in this province.

This year walks were held in Bishop’s Falls and Grand Falls-Windsor. Almost $3,500 was raised in Bishop’s Falls, and more than $4,000 in Grand Falls-Windsor. That brings the total raised in Grand Falls-Windsor since 1997 to $216,804.51 and $72,961.90 in Bishop’s Falls since 1998. To date, the Exploits Valley subchapter has granted 43 wishes including three this year – Sammijo travelled to Disney World; Belle received a swimming pool; and Colby travelling to Disney World. They also have three additional wishes in the works.
