The 3rd Annual Walk For Wishes® to benefit Make-A-Wish® U.S. Virgin Islands was a huge success. More than 700 participants came out to Yacht Haven Grande for a morning of fun and fitness on Saturday, September 27, 2014. Wish child D’Lany also participated to help share the power of a wish® with other children. D'Lany is a 7-year-old from St. Thomas whose wish to go to Walt Disney World® was granted last September. In all, the Walk For Wishes raised more than $23,000, which will grant the wonderful wishes of four children with life-threatening medical conditions in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
