Trek to the lost city of the Incas in search of the fabled ruins of Machu Picchu
The legendary Inca city of Machu Picchu is nestled up in the Peruvian Andes, hidden away and surrounded by mountains on all sides. Our 6-day trek will see you cross the Andes in search of the lost city, departing from the bustling colonial mountain-town of Cusco and winding your way through breath-taking mountain passes, past sacred mountains and through humid jungle trails to reach the fabled ruins of Machu Picchu.

Wishes make life better for kids with life-threatening medical conditions. This simple, but powerful belief drives Make-A-Wish. This one belief guides us in everything we do at Make-A-Wish®. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve. It compels us to be creative in exceeding the expectations of every wish kid. It drives us to make our donated resources go as far as possible. Most of all, it's the founding principle of our vision to grant the wish of every eligible child. Wishes are more than just a nice thing. And they are far more than gifts, or singular events in time. Wishes impact everyone involved - wish kids, volunteers, donors, sponsors, medical professionals and communities. The impact varies. For wish kids, just the act of making their wish come true can give them the courage to comply with their medical treatments. Parents might finally feel like they can be optimistic. And still others might realize all they have to offer the world through volunteer work or philanthropy. To read more about Make-A-Wish®, please click here!
