“The Make-A-Wish Foundation does so much good for kids and we want to give back to those who are working to raise money to support the organization,” said Nick Crouch, owner of 12 North Florida Tropical Smoothie Cafés. “We encourage everyone to come out and walk, enjoy a smoothie and raise lots of money for more wishes.”

Walk for Wishes is a nationwide fundraiser which celebrates the hundreds of thousands of wishes that have been granted and raises funds for future wishes. The Make-A-Wish Foundation believes the wishes they grant for children who are battling a life-threatening medical condition can have a life-changing impact.
