Five-year-old Rowen is already looking forward to lacing up her sneakers and joining her friends and family for the fifth annual Walk For Wishes presented by 5DayDeal on October 2. She chose the team’s name, Team Rowen & The Unicorns, and is helping her mom recruit walkers and secure donations.

Rowen, who has leukemia, was granted a wish from Make-A-Wish Colorado and still smiles every time she thinks about the magical week that she and her family spent at Walt Disney World in 2019. Rowen and her family want to bring that same joy to another child who is battling a critical illness, which is why they are so eager to participate in this year’s Walk For Wishes, benefiting Make-A-Wish Colorado.

The fifth annual Walk For Wishes takes place on Saturday, Oct. 2, 2021 and will feature both a live and virtual event. Participants can join in the fun at the Great Lawn Park in Denver’s Lowry neighborhood or they can walk on their own wherever they choose. The Great Lawn event begins at 10 a.m. and will include a 2-mile walk in the park, a kids fun run, music, activities, food and an expo. Those participating virtually can tune into an online event at 10:00 a.m. to meet some of the wish kids and share the power of a wish® before starting off on their own walk.
