JBLThe following is from WWE.com: WWE Legend and Hall of Famer Jimmy Hart – and his infamous megaphone – led nearly 3,000 participants in a two-mile walk for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Greater Los Angeles’ 2nd Annual Walk for Wishes. The event was presented by Mattel, Inc., on Saturday in downtown Los Angeles. Joined by celebrities Alisa Reyes (“Boston Public,” “The Proud Family”) and Didiayer Snyder (“Extreme Makeover: Home Edition”), the walk raised more than $225,000 to help children with life-threatening medical conditions. After the walk, Hart met many members of the WWE Universe, and took photographs and signed autographs for them. Walk participants enjoyed food and drinks from Daily Grill, Hoagies & Wings, Trimana, Yakult, Peets’ Coffee & Tea and Frigo Cheese Heads, and activities including a Hot Wheels track, face painting, airbrush art and a bounce house.
