Wyoming – Communities across the state will host a series of 5k events this summer to benefit Make-A-Wish® Wyoming.

[bsa_pro_ad_space id=5]

Tour de Wish is a series of 5k bike rides, runs and walks that was inspired by the first wish granted in Wyoming to 10-year-old Brian of Gillette who wished for a BMX bike in 1985. Brian’s wish was not only the first wish granted by Make-A-Wish Wyoming, it has become a legacy of serving children with critical medical conditions across the state for years to come. This is the fourth year Make-A-Wish Wyoming has partnered with communities around the state to hold Tour de Wish events. We invite wish supporters to celebrate Brian’s wish and the more than 560 wishes that have since been granted to Wyoming children at Tour de Wish in their community.

Communities hosting Tour de Wish events include:

  • Rock Springs, May 5
  • Sundance, May 5
  • Casper, June 9
  • Cheyenne, June 16
  • Thermopolis, June 16
  • Lander, September 8
  • Laramie, September 22
