Run For Wishes 5K This Saturday

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - Want to help make a child's wish come true? Just lace up your running shoes and head to the Village of Providence on Saturday, October 6.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation will hold its second annual Run For Wishes at 8 a.m.  The 5K is $20 for adults and the kids' 1-mile fun run is $10. 

Last year's run raised $20,000 to grant wishes to children with life-threatening diseases.  All money raised stays in north Alabama, and will be used to grant wishes of local children.  Make-A-Wish currently has more than 12 requests from children in the Tennessee Valley.

You can register at

There will also be inflatables on the Village of Providence Green.  These are free to enjoy.
