PAM Walk for Wishes

2024 Walk for Wishes

Earlier this year, we had the incredible opportunity to participate in the Walk for Wishes fundraiser that supports Make-A-Wish in granting life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.  This event was a tremendous success with the joy of giving back to the community.

Community members gather at Arvest Ballpark in Springdale, Arkansas. This event featured numerous booths from various sponsors, each contributing to the cause in their unique way.   Attendees had the chance to walk around and explore the different booths, each offering something special.

This year Walk for Wishes announced a wish that was granted for one child, Azalea, who is going to Disney World. They raised over $250,000 to make wishes come true and celebrated with more than 40 wish families.

To help bring awareness to Make-A-Wish and the Walk for Wishes event PAM organized different things to help fundraise for the cause. We had football squares for the Superbowl game, a pancake breakfast, and we also made t-shirts for the event. These efforts not only raised funds but also united our company in support of a wonderful cause.

Our pancake breakfast was a way for our team to socialize and had coffee from Starbucks that was donated from one of the Bentonville, AR locations. Our graphic designer Hayden Bagley designed a t-shirt that incorporated both the Walk for Wishes information, and our PAM Transport logo on a truck. We raised $968 from our fundraising event and donated $3,500 to the local Mid-South Chapter of Make-A-Wish.

“I loved seeing the smiles on the faces of the kids that attended the event and seeing all the fun they were having while visiting the different booths, dancing to the music and turning in their stamp map for their prize,” says D’arcy Edwards, Social Media Coordinator at PAM.

Supporting our local community is important to PAM Transport because it allows us to help make our community a better place, show our support and help raise awareness for different causes with our network. Walk for Wishes is important to us because it’s a great event that helps to grant wishes throughout the year, support families and their children while receiving treatment. We are grateful to have been a part of such a meaningful cause and look forward to supporting more events like this in the future.
