Spreading good cheer across the Stateline, our own Shannon Kelly and Mike Garrigan co-hosted the first Walk for Wishes for Make-A-Wish Illinois at Rock Valley College.

Honoring the organization's spirit of “Anything is Possible,” Wish families and supporters braved the stormy weather to raise money in costumes of their favorite characters.

Every day, approximately three Illinois children are newly diagnosed with a critical illness. Through Make-A-Wish, Wish recipients get life-changing experiences, restoring hope and energy for themselves and their families.

Through their efforts, walkers raised more than more than $18,000 for the organization.
