Snowmobile snocross champion Tucker Hibbert is leading a team focused on raising money for Make-A-Wish Minnesota.
No stranger to setting and achieving goals, the 14-time X Games medalist is asking fans, friends and family to join his Team 68 Walk for Wishes team to raise $6,800; the average cost for Make-A-Wish Minnesota to grant the wish of a child.
On Saturday, Aug. 6, Hibbert will lead Team 68 in a 5K walk through Minnehaha Park in Minneapolis at the 10th Annual Walk for Wishes event. A donation of $20 or more earns you a spot on the team and a limited-edition Team 68 t-shirt. Every dollar raised by the team will go directly to Make-A-Wish Minnesota.
“We’re really excited to get Team 68 fans together to raise money for Make-A-Wish Minnesota,” Hibbert said. “Last year, when we were involved with granting a boy’s wish to get a snowmobile, we experienced firsthand the power of a wish. It’s an honor to be involved with an organization that’s making a difference in people’s lives.”
“A wish experience can be a game-changer for a child with a life-threatening medical condition. A wish is much more than just a nice thing. The experience can positively impact the lives of everyone involved, forever,” said Mia Broos Hoagberg, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish Minnesota. “With the support of friends like Tucker, we are able to grant life-changing wishes for Minnesota kids. Every dollar raised through Walk for Wishes will provide wish kids and families with a healing experience at a time when they are devastated by their diagnosis. We thank Tucker for his continued support.”
