Runners track their own times and distance of their registered run.  Track your distance using any time and distance tracker.  If you do not currently use one, consider one of these free apps to complete your run: RunKeeper, powered by Asics, MapMyRun, Strava,  or RunGo.  All are available in the App Store.  Once you complete your run,   e-mail your name, age, gender, and a screenshot of your time and distance to [email protected] by May 3rd at       midnight.  We will recognize 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners of all   distances for each age category, including overall winners and overall masters winners of each distance.  Awards will be announced May 5th on the Run for Wishes   Facebook Page.  Medals will be given at the “post-run” party and wish celebration.  For untimed walker registrations, we hope you will join us in walking a 5k wherever and whenever you can between April 29 and May 3rd.  Don’t forget to post your photos to social media and tag #RunForWishesSavannah.  

How will a virtual Run for Wishes work?

Instead of running the trails at Skidaway Island State Park, choose your favorite outdoor course or complete your race on a treadmill.  The virtual race will be held Wednesday, April 29th – Sunday, May 3rd.  Before, during, and after the race, we want to show your support of wishes to our wish family.  Post your photos to social media and tag #RunForWishesSavannah.  

How to Register!

Register at Georgia.wish.org/runforwishes.  All participants will receive a Run for Wishes dry-fit t-shirt, finisher certificate, and invitation to the “post-run” party and wish celebration (date and time TBD).

Thank You!

On average, Make-A-Wish Georgia grants 400+ wishes per year, and 79% of these wishes involve air  travel.  We   estimate two wishes per day will be delayed by COVID-19.  Since we serve some of the most fragile community, their health continues to be at the forefront of the work we do.  Our mission is to create life-changing wishes for  children with critical illnesses. While our mission is being challenged, we remain dedicated to delivering hope and joy to the families we serve.  During this time, we are extremely grateful for you, the community that support us.  The postponement of wishes means there will be more wish kids in Georgia waiting for a wish than ever before. Your  participation in Run for Wishes Savannah will help ensure these wishes become a reality.
