Team 68 named top fundraiser at Walk for Wishes

August 7, 2018 – For the third year in a row, Tucker Hibbert’s Team 68 was honored for its fundraising efforts at Make-A-Wish®Minnesota’s Walk for Wishes® Twin Cities event. Despite cloudy skies and the threat of thunderstorms, nearly 100 people joined Hibbert Saturday morning at Minnehaha Park in Minneapolis to take part in a 5K walk / run and support the wish granting mission of Make-A-Wish Minnesota.

“I’m blown away by how generous everyone has been and how awesome this year’s Walk for Wishes went,” Hibbert said. “Every year it keeps getting better and even with bad weather in the forecast, a lot of loyal people showed up to support Make-A-Wish Minnesota and have some fun. We had a good time together and raised a lot of money to help grant wishes.”

Team 68 recorded $12,534 in donations at this year’s Walk for Wishes. Since 2016, the team has raised nearly $34,000 to grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses.

The Team 68 fundraising page will stay open through Friday, August 17. Hibbert will honor every contribution of $20 or more with a Team 68 Walk for Wishes t-shirt. For more information and to make a donation, visit site.wish.org/goto/Team68.

It was Hibbert’s first experience with Make-A-Wish and the reason he started supporting the organization. Nick and his family are passionate about giving back to Make-A-Wish and have been apart of Hibbert’s Walk for Wishes team the past three years.
