Project Description

The Project: CakeWalk is a fundraiser for Birthday Wishes, a non-profit organization. CakeWalk will take place from 7:45-10:00 am on Sunday morning, May 17, 2015. This will be Birthday Wishes's fourth annual CakeWalk at Millennium Park in West Roxbury, MA.

CakeWalk is a family friendly, noncompetitive walk that includes two routes (5K and half-mile), in addition to a fun festival of children’s activities including field games, face painting, live music, crafts, a family raffle, free refreshments and more.

CakeWalk is our Birthday Wishes’ signature fundraising event, reflecting the grassroots nature of our organization and the importance of kids helping kids. Walk individually or team up with your family, friends or group.

*If you would like to be involved with this project you can register at and join the LHS team. We will be fundraising together. If you would prefer not to walk you can also sign up to volunteer through the website previously mentioned. ** If you have any questions please contact Abby Mulligan at (address redacted)

The Mission and Outreach of Birthday Wishes: The mission of Birthday Wishes is to provide birthday parties for homeless children. We believe that all children, regardless of their living situation, should celebrate their birthdays joyfully, surrounded by family, friends, and others who care.

Our grassroots philosophy fosters the spirit of volunteerism and community service in the adults, children, and families who donate their time and resources to the Birthday Wishes mission.

Birthday Wishes brings the magic of a birthday party to thousands of homeless children each year. Founded in 2002 as a volunteer organization serving one local shelter, Birthday Wishes has expanded its program to serve more than 200 shelters and transitional living facilities in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Long Island, New York. Our goal is to provide birthday parties to all homeless children in Massachusetts and to make our model available to homeless family programs nationwide. Visit our site for more information.
