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.

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