Danny’s Walk to benefit Make-a-Wish

Help make wishes come true at the 4th Annual Danny’s Walk to benefit Make-a-Wish Mid-Atlantic. The event will take place on Saturday, April 18th at Martin Sutton Park in Ridgely.

Danny’s Walk was founded by Danny Lockhart, a Ridgely teen who was a Make-a-Wish recipient after being diagnosed with a severe form of scoliosis.  The Make-a-Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. This year’s goal is to raise $15,000 – enough to fulfill two wishes. The event will feature live music by The Cheaters, food, vendors, a dunking booth and more! For more information, please visit  facebook.com/DannysWalkForWishes.
