ATLANTA (April 26, 2011) - A group of Georgia State student-athletes from various teams joined the Walk For Wishes event on Saturday, April 16. The event through the Make A Wish Foundation was held at Atlantic Station.

The goal was to raise funds to help grant the wishes to children with threatening medical conditions. The three-hour event through Atlanta saw the walkers earn money for their distance and efforts.

This is another of the dozens and dozens of community events that GSU student-athletes participate in as they topped the 5,000 hour level of community involvement during this school year.
