MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Oct. 13, 2010) - On Sunday, October 17th, hundreds of people will gather at Maisonneuve Park for a major event in support of the Children's Wish Foundation!

The Walk for Wishes is a family event aiming at collecting funds in order to give hope to children afflicted with life-threatening illness. The Foundation's spokesperson Marie-Élaine Thibert, as well as its ambassadors, Lori Graham and Stéphane Bellavance, will host this special day. Moreover, for the joy of children, Children's Wish will be able to count on the participation of the cast of the well-known TV show "Une grenade avec ça?" produced by Zone 3 and broadcasted on VRAK TV, les Petites Tounes and les Clowns du Caroussel. This year's financial goal for the Walk for Wishes is of $80, 000!

The Walk for Wishes is a great opportunity for Montrealers to support concretely the Foundation's and bring HOPE to sick children. "Each year, thousands of Canadian children between the ages of 3 and 17 are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Since 1984, The Children's Wish Foundation has worked tirelessly to grant exceptional wishes to 16,000 children and their families. I am really proud to be associated to such a worthy cause!" adds Lori Graham Children's Wish Ambassador and weather presenter at CTV Montreal.

This year, the Foundation expects to grant 1,000 new wishes. Each wish is an individual adventure, carefully structured to meet the needs of a particular child and family. The foundation is a grassroots charity with chapters in every province and territory.
