Not only does Tucker HIbbert give it all he’s got on the race track, turns out he gives plenty off it as well. In just a little over a week, Tucker and hundreds of others will participate in the 10th Annual Walk for Wishes event in Minneapolis while raising money of the Make-A-Wish foundation of Minnesota. Even if you can’t be there with boots on the ground, you can still support Team 68 with an online donation and receive a very cool limited edition shirt. The official word from Tucker and Arctic Cat follows but if you just want to get your paws on the shirt and help do something special in a child’s life, scroll to the bottom and click on the link to join Tucker’s team.
Donate $20, Receive a Limited Edition Team 68 T-Shirt while supporting Make-A-Wish®
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.
Saturday, August 6th, 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.”
