2019 Trailblaze Challenge - Charlotte, NC

Avett Groupies

 
It's not a race...It's a journey.

We are excited to take on this year’s Spring Trailblaze Challenge.  28.3 miles in one day! In addition to the physical challenge, we have committed ourselves to raising money for Make-A-Wish to help grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses. With your help, it’s possible.  
 
We first met in the fall of 2017 during the training hikes for the Fall Trailblaze Challenge.  Kathleen noticed a Merlefest (awesome and local music festival) sticker on a fellow hiker's car, and she had to find the owner.  The car belonged to Drew, and they quickly bonded over music, specifically The Avett Brothers, camping, and their families.  Drew's older son, Levi, and Kathleen's younger daughter, Vera, are the same age.  In fact, Drew's son was born on Vera's due date, and Vera was born on Levi's due date!  Since the hike, the Fulcher and Griffin families have become friends.  We are in competition to see which family accrues the most Avett Brother concert posters.  Hence, the team name of Avett Groupies.  Not only are we Avett Groupies, but we are hikers and we are lucky to be healthy and able to participate in the Trailblaze Challenge.  There are many reasons why we want to raise money and awareness for Make-A-Wish, but the most important reason is for the children with chronic and life-altering/threatening diseases.  These wishes truly change the lives of these children and their families.  Make-A-Wish grants thousands of unique wishes each year. A lot, yes. But that’s only 50% of eligible kids. We’re fundraising so more deserving kids and their families can know the happiness, relief and renewal a wish can bring. 

Please help us support this great cause by joining us on the trail or helping us hit our Trailblaze Challenge fundraising goal.  Thank you for your support!
