What an honor to be a part of the annual "Walk for Wishes" this weekend.

My wife Jodi and I were happy to walk to help raise money for one of the most outstanding charity organizations in the country.  Make-A-Wish New Jersey is lead by my friend Tom Weatherall, and has successfully granted more than 9,000 wishes to kids battling illness.

Our friend Rob Dekanski from Remax also attended and walked with us. Rob stepped up to sponsor the station's involvement which included the walk and a live broadcast from Big Joe Henry. Jodi and I were happy to walk with him and look forward to many future events helping an important New Jersey cause. Our friends the Crowley's were also there with their daughter Megan who you may remember was invited to meet the President last year and attend his speech to Congress.

Bill Spadea is on the air weekdays from 6 to 10 a.m., talkin’ Jersey, taking your calls at 1-800-283-1015. Tweet him @NJ1015 or @BillSpadea.
