One of the best ways to bring a community together is to rally behind a great cause. Donor-planned events are a unique and effective way to support Make-A-Wish, and our supporters have come up with some incredibly creative ways to raise money for wish kids. Here are just a few of their stories:


Hope Run

Since 2016, Hope Run has raised over $180,000 for Make-A-Wish Northern Alberta! Hope Run's founding committee began this 2.5km walk/5km run in memory of their dear friend and they donate all the proceeds to making wishes happen in their community. 

For more information on Hope Run, see www.hoperun.ca

Valleyview Cup

Since 2012 the Valleyview Cup hockey tournament has been raising money for Make-A-Wish Northern Alberta, donating over $24,000 in 2019 alone. This incredible group has made 14 wishes possible!

For more information on the Valleyview Cup, see their Facebook page.

Jeff Zorn Annual Memorial Bonspiel

Inspired by wish kid Jeff Zorn (who was an avid curler), the Zorn Memorial Bonspiel has been held annually in Drayton Valley since 2011. In that time this event has raised over $160,000, all for life-changing wishes throughout Northern Alberta. 100% of the proceeds from the bonspiel's silent auction come directly to Make-A-Wish, and the legacy of Jeff's smile, laughter and hope live on. For more information on the Jeff Zorn Annual Memorial Bonspiel, see their Facebook page.

Will your story be the next to tell? More kids are waiting for their wishes. Your fundraiser will help.
