“Our team had a phenomenal time at the walk,” said John S. Pitts, founder and president, Tekcetera, Inc. “It was incredibly rewarding to give back to such a wonderful organization like the Make-A-Wish Foundation and know that the funds raised from the event are going to be used to assist in granting wishes to deserving children. We were incredibly honored to be a part of the Walk for Wishes event.”
The second annual Walk for Wishes, which was held at the Orange County Great Park in Irvine, saw more than 1,400 participants and 80 teams come out to brave the heat and raise both awareness and donations for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Orange County and the Inland Empire. The event, which counted Grainger® as the presenting sponsor, raised more than $190,000, surpassing the inaugural year’s walk by more than $75,000.
