The Portage chapter of the Children's Wish Foundation will be a step closer to granting another wish this weekend...

Among other events, a one kilometre walk is being conducted at the Portage Mall this morning as a fundraiser for the charity. 


Coordinator Marilyn Ward explains the event is being dedicated to a five year old girl in the Portage area.  The money will be used to re-do her bedroom. 


While Ward thinks the charity is often overlooked, she stresses an importance in making a contribution. 


The Children's Wish Foundation grants wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses.
