Make-A-Wish Trailblaze Challenge Spring 2018
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 completed the Make-A-Wish Trailblaze Challenge 26.5 mile hike for Eastern North Carolina on June 2. Not only granting more wishes to children with life threatening conditions, but my husband and I also ended up rescuing a stray dog during the hike! We are now only less than $700 away to reach our $5000 fundraising goal!
