The UW chapter of Chi Omega will be hosting the fourth annual Tour de Wish in Laramie on Saturday, September 22 in Washington Park.

The Tour de Wish is a walk, run, and bike 5k organized to raise money for Make-a-Wish Wyoming. Bicyclists, walkers, and runners of all ages and skill levels are welcome to participate in the 5k.

Registration is currently open and costs $15 for those who register early. Participants can also sign up on race day for $20. Children ages 10 and under can participate with a $5 registration fee. Race day registration starts at 8:30 a.m. All proceeds from the 5k will benefit Make-a-Wish Wyoming.

Make-a-Wish Wyoming has been granting wishes for children ages 2 to 17 with progresssive, degenerative, or malignant illnesses since 1985. The first wish granted in Wyoming was that of 10 year old Brian from Gillette, who wished for a BMX bike. Since then, more than 500 wishes have been granted, and there are 35 currently in progress.

For more information about Make-a-Wish Wyoming or to sign up for the race, please visit the Make-a-Wish Wyoming website or contact Tess Mittelstadt by calling (307) 237-9474.
