SEATTLE -- A lot of wishes are about to come true for kids around the region, thanks to the generosity of KOMO viewers and readers.

Our Wishes in Flight mileage drive on Thursday raised over 5 million miles for Make-A-Wish -- 5,414,388 miles to be exact.  Viewers also donated $2,535 in cash!

The 5.4 million miles will provide 135 plane tickets for Make-A-Wish, which will save the agency about $60,000 in providing wishes to kids in need.

"Thank you all for your continued support," said Jeanette Tarcha with Make-A-Wish Alaska & Washington. "What a great day all around!"
