About A Special Wish

With a little help from A Special Wish you can GUARANTEE yourself a spot in this years Bank of America Chicago Marathon while raising money to help put a much needed smile on a child's face. 

Our goal is set at $20,000 this year and that would help grant wishes for 8 special kids (approximately $2500 is spent for each wish).  Please join our team today!

The Chicago chapter of A Special Wish Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to granting the wishes of children and young adults, from birth through age 20, in the greater Chicago-land area who have been diagnosed with a life threatening condition.

We are a strictly volunteer organization with no "brick and mortar" offices or paid staff. With very low overhead, we are able to direct over 90% of every donation received directly to granting the wishes of our very special kids!

Already have a spot? You can still fundraise for A Special Wish!
