About Wish-A-Mile® Bicycle Tour

The Wish-A-Mile Bicycle Tour started in 1987  when four friends challenged each other to ride 300 miles from Canton to Mackinac. In the 35 years since then, WAM has grown into the largest fundraising event for Make-A-Wish Michigan. With your support this year, WAM will reach an incredible milestone - $35 million raised over 35 years - an incredible accomplishment for the dedicated WAM riders and volunteers who return year after year to make wishes possible for Michigan children battling critical illnesses.

You can be a difference maker for wish kids in your community by joining us for the 35th annual Wish-A-Mile Bicycle Tour on July 28-31, 2022. Whether you sign up for the WAM 300, WAM 50, WAM Jr., as a Virtual participant or as a volunteer, you can help create transformational wishes for Michigan wish kids. Register today to help make wishes possible for courageous Michigan children.

About Make-A-Wish® Michigan

Make-A-Wish Michigan began in 1984 when Joshua, an 11-year-old from Tecumseh, wished to go to Walt Disney World® Resort. Fourteen other courageous children experienced the joy of a wish in that first year. 

Today, Make-A-Wish Michigan grants wishes to hundreds of Michigan children annually, granting more than 10,000 wishes in its history. In 2021, Make-A-Wish Michigan granted 364 transformational wishes to courageous Michigan children. 

The mission of Make-A-Wish Michigan is elegantly simple: We create life-changing wishes for Michigan kids with critical illnesses. Our vision is to grant a wish for every eligible child in Michigan.
