Make-A-Wish Trailblaze Challenge
You are probably already familiar with the Make-A-Wish® Foundation, their core mission is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy. Over the organization's 30-year history, they have found that granting a wish for a child struggling with illness is often one of the best medicines possible. It is a prescription that changes a child’s outlook on life and can provide a much needed oasis of respite from struggles that most of us can’t imagine.
In an effort to raise funds to grant more wishes and in the honor of my cousin, my team of Emily Kait and I are participating in the Make-A-Wish Trailblaze Challenge for Eastern North Carolina this spring. On Saturday, June 2, we will hike 26.5 miles of the Sauratown Trail with many others. Both of us are committed to raising $2,500 for this challenge, and all funds go to this terrific organization. The average cost of a Wish is $7,500 or more. Every little bit matters and will make a big difference in a child’s life! So far, our team has raised over $3000!
