Anna's Wish

One of Anna’s favorite places to visit was Black Creek Park in Chili, New York.  In fact, this was the last place she visited before we were told that she had relapsed for the second time and her chances of beating the disease were not very high.  In the back of our minds, we knew there was a possibility we were going to receive that news, so we enjoyed our time, watching Anna play on the equipment and spending time as a complete family, watching the ducks and feeding pieces of bread to the fish, much to the delight and laughter of Anna and Molly.

It is only fitting that this is the site where this event is hosted.  One of Anna’s favorite parts of this park was the ‘secret bridge’ that is located just into the woods near the pond.  She was so excited each and every time we went to Black Creek to show us the secret bridge.  We now refer to this as “Anna’s Bridge” and the route will cross this bridge twice.

Become a Fundraiser!
Ever since she was a toddler, Anna loved to give presents to people.  She got so excited to watch her friends and family open gifts because it made them happy.  In addition, Anna always said that she desired to help other kids that are fighting cancer.  By giving to Anna’s Wish, your donation will go directly to the purchasing of gifts, tickets, birthday parties, and any other pick-me-ups for children battling cancer, all while fulfilling Anna’s Wish.

Anna’s Wish Virtual 5K Race

For those of you who can't make it on race day, our virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose.  You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym or on the track (or even at another race). You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself.  Your race shirt will be shipped directly to you!  Plus, email us at cheryl@annaswish.org with a picture of you running or in your running gear on or before race day, and we can include it with our race day photo album.
