Witness one of the Seven Wonders of the World and discover your inner philanthropist by joining Make-A-Wish® New Zealand on the Walking for Wishes: Great Wall of China 2019 challenge! Every step you take will help grant life-changing wishes for hundreds of New Zealand children battling critical illnesses.

As part of this life changing adventure, you’ll experience by foot, the grandeur of China’s ancient history.

Starting in Beijing, you will discover some of China’s most beautiful historical landmarks, such as the Forbidden City and the Temple of Heaven. Nothing short of extraordinary, you will then swap the hustle and bustle of the city and follow the footsteps of the past along the Great Wall.

Challenge yourself like never before as you trek over cloud-kissed mountains and through majestic forests, rustic villages and rolling farmlands. With the support of our expert guides, you’ll explore the many facets of the Great Wall, deciphering the ancient stories and poems etched into its watchtowers, every brick seeming to tell a story of war and adventure.

One of mankind’s most impressive architectural accomplishments, the Great Wall is a beautiful sight to behold and an experience not to be missed. Best of all, with every kilometre you cover; you will be raising funds to help Make-A-Wish NZ grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses

Make-A-Wish NZ grant around 200 wishes every year, but sadly this doesn’t cover all of the several hundred children who are diagnosed with critical illnesses annually. We urgently need more funds to reach the additional 200 children who are still waiting to have their wish fulfilled.

With every step you take on the Walking for Wishes: Great Wall of China 2019, you will be raising vital funds to help us reach these 200 children with critical illnesses who are patiently waiting to experience the transformational effect of having their one true wish fulfilled.
