The nonprofit Ride to a Wish Foundation was founded in 2009 to grant wishes for children battling life-threatening illnesses. After all, such children should be given as many reasons to smile and enjoy themselves as possible. The young grassroots organization is known for its ability to mobilize volunteers and donors—in fact, it's raised $100,000 in just one year. Ride to a Wish also hosts fundraising events that get the community involved, including a motorcycle rally, an annual gala, the wintertime Frostbite 5K, and the zombie-themed Walkers 5K.
