1 800 GET THINSM is proud to sponsor Wendy Carrillo in this year's Walk for Wishes and encourages you to live a healthier life, get involved in your community and help brighten children's lives, one step at a time! Wendy Carrillo is the host of Knowledge Is Power, Power 106 FM's Los Angeles community platform where awareness on issues that matter to Angelenos are raised. Knowledge Is Power is an open dialogue with experts where issues ranging from health, education, the economy, and politics, to gangs, youth in prison, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and their respective impact on our communities are discussed. Wendy opens the phone lines to Power 106 listeners to contribute to the conversation and not only discuss the issues, but come up with creative ways to find solutions and get involved. In her "Hold Them Accountable" segment, elected officials ranging from school board members to members of Congress have discussed what they are doing to improve our neighborhoods and quality of life.
This year, Wendy will be joining the thousands of people who will be participating in the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Greater Los Angeles's 4th Annual Walk for Wishes, a 2 mile walk-a-thon event aimed at encouraging kids and families to be actively involved in fundraising to give back to the children of Los Angeles who are battling life-threatening medical conditions enriching the human experience with hope, strength and joy. This year's Walk for Wishes will be held on March 5, 2011 at Mattel Inc. in El Segundo, CA.
