Why take on Race to the King for Make-A-Wish UK?

By supporting Make-A-Wish UK and becoming a #WishHero in the 2024 Race to the King, you'll be transforming the lives of children like Danny from Oxford. He wished to be a King for the day because he read so many of the Horrible Histories books in hospital. It was all made possible because of #WishHeroes like you.
