4th Annual Walk for Wishes

Right now, some children are facing life-threatening medical conditions. The Make-a-Wish offers a chance for them to look forward to something great in their future: an opportunity to experience their idea of life at its best!

That why it was a great pleasure for forty two people who either work for SofterWare, or know someone who does, to participate in the 4th Annual Walk for Wishes on October 12th at the Philadelphia Zoo.

Laura Bigelow organized our participation, and it was a great day for all. Lots to eat (TastyKakes, granola bars, fruit, water, chocolate milk, muffins), live entertainment, Philly Phanatic and AC Moore crafts were there.

Everyone enjoyed walking with their team and meeting other team members. Then all went on their own way to explore the zoo. Paula Burns, one of our client account managers for DonorPerfect, won some fantastic things from the raffles. The animals cooperated by showing up in the beautiful weather. They even walked over our heads, which was way cool (see pictures below)!

We were all there to support a wonderful cause, to help grant wishes to very sick children, so that really made it a great day.
