Ohio Mileathon

How You Can Help

Last year alone, Make-A-Wish® granted wishes to more than 400 children in Ohio - over 300 of these wishes involved air travel.

Our need is great. Each year the organization provides approximately 1,500 airline tickets, the equivalent of 80 million airline miles, to help Ohio wish kids travel to the incredible experiences they wish for with their families.

Donations can be made online anytime:

This year’s Ohio Mileathon hopes to raise 2 million airline miles and cash donations to cover travel expenses. Donating miles or dollars is a simple and easy way to make a difference in the lives of local children with life-threatening medical conditions.

On Tuesday, April 29th, community members can support our mission through the Ohio Mileathon by calling our phone bank at 888-272-9474 from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. A Make-A-Wish volunteer will be available to take a person’s mileage account number for Delta, United/Continental and U.S. Airways airline miles. The minimum donation is 1,000 miles.

If supporters don’t have a mileage account with one of the designated airlines, Make-A-Wish will also accept cash donations to help offset travel expenses. For example, the following donation amounts can be put toward travel expenditures including:

  • confirmed seating - $25
  • baggage fee - $50
  • luggage - $100
  • passport - $150
  • trip insurance - $200
  • oxygen concentrators - $300
  • limo ride to the airport - $500

Tune in to 13abc and Cumulus Radio in Toledo, WLWT News 5 in Cincinnati or NBC 4 in Columbus for regular updates throughout the day.
