I am excited to again take on the Trailblaze Challenge. In addition to the (two!) physical challenges (26.3 miles on May 1st and 28.3 miles on June 5th), I have committed myself to raising money for Make-A-Wish to help grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses. With your help, it’s possible.
Wish kids are some of the bravest and sweetest kids you'll ever know. They wish to work in a pickle factory, become a superhero, go snorkeling, give their baseball team new uniforms, and push all of the buttons in a tall building's elevator. Their innocence and unexpected wisdom stays with you.
Make-A-Wish grants thousands of unique wishes each year. Sadly, less than 1/2 of eligible kids have their wishes granted. I’m fundraising so more deserving kids and their families can know the happiness, relief, and renewal a wish can bring.
Research has shown that a granted wish, on average, improves the health of the child and reduces the number of and length of hospital stays! It is that impactful.
Please help me support this great cause by helping me hit my Trailblaze Challenge fundraising goal. Thank you for your support.
