2013 Walk For Wishes Columbus – Heroes Alliance Ohio Event Report

Heroes Alliance Ohio returned once more to Huntington Park to help out for the 2013 Columbus Walk For Wishes on behalf of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Captain America, Catwoman, Spider-Man, Superman, Wonder Woman and Zatanna were on hand to meet and cheer on the friends and families of children who had been recipients of a Wish from Make-A-Wish, along with those who helped raise money for them.

The heroes met with many of the wish families, cheered walkers on as the walk began, and greeted and congratulated them upon their return. This is the team’s fourth time supporting Make-A-Wish with one of their Walk for Wishes, and it will certainly not be the last.

Special thanks to Stephen Blanzaco and Tom Bolenbaugh for out-of-costume support and for picture taking for the event.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation exists to grant the wishes of children with life threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Last year, over 850 wishes were granted by the Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana offices. The Foundation is supported through local donations from individuals, corporations, small businesses, civic organizations, churches, schools, social and service clubs, fund-raising events, memorial contributions, foundations, and pay-roll deduction programs as well as their own special events.
