Our Fundraising Goal:




Make a General Donation!

Come out and support our mission while enjoying a walk with your family and friends.  Start or join a walk team to set your own personal goal and show your commitment to our psychosocial cause!


Why Walk?


The Walk and Family Festival is designed to enhance awareness of the psychological and social needs of children and families battling childhood cancer.  Our goal is to raise $100,000. The Walk raises 85% of our budget which covers the cost of our psychosocial programs and services.  These funds are not used for administrative or operating costs of the Foundation.

Mike Grusholt Memorial Corn Hole Tournament
Play as an individual and raise funds for Mattie Miracle. First place winner receives a brand new pair of AirPods Pro!  There are awesome prizes for 2nd and 3rd place!
Psychosocial Initiative Wall Challenge
The more laps you complete around the track, the closer we get to funding our new initiative to create a psychological referrals program for children with cancer.  This referrals program will enable Mattie Miracle to connect qualified clinicians with children who have cancer and their families.  The program will be designed to support the mental health needs of families as well as fund access to these services.
New Activities this Year
High Voltage Grinder (an incredible obstacle inflatable course), the Funny Farm themed moon bounce, a caricaturist, a face painter and balloon animal artist, and a Reptiles Alive Show (a live exotic animal show, followed by a meet and greet with the animals). 
Back by popular demand: the Corn Hole Tournament, a Raffle, Lego activities, DJ music, a Magic Show, Face Painting, Crafts, a Bake Sale, Food Vendors, and Giant Lawn Games like Connect Four, Ladders and Giant Jenga.



Food Trucks!
We are pleased to announce this year that we will have several food trucks on site to provide food for sale.  We thank DC Empanadas, Big Cheese, Rocklands, and Hershery's Ice Cream for supporting our cause!
