New Hike Day: October 3, 2020
We have been remiss in updating all our amazing donors about our participation in the Make A Wish Trailblaze Challenge. Several weeks ago, Make A Wish made the difficult decision to postpone the May hikes. While we are incredibly disappointed to not be hiking on May 16th, we are fully recommitted, paperwork signed and we are hiking on Saturday, October 3rd. We are still raising funds, we are still training every weekend and we are still 100% committed to making wishes come true in October!
Thanks to all our wonderful supporters, we met our required fundraising goal of $5,000 on March 10, 2020! So, we've decided to challenge ourselves further and have increased our fundraising goal to $7,500 before we hit the trail on October 3, 2020.
It's not a race...It's a journey.
We are excited to take on this year’s Trailblaze Challenge. A HUGE thank you to Bethany's incredibly supportive employer, HealthTeam Advantage for supporting us and becoming a Bronze Sponsor!
A year and a half ago we made the decision to get outside more. Our adventures have brought Craig overnight on the Appalachian Trail twice, and together we have hit the trails as far away as Acadia National Park in Maine, and as close as the Bald Eagle Trail in Greensboro – and in between we have backpacked at Mount Rogers, Uwharrie National Forest, Pilot Mountain, Hanging Rock and more!
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.
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. 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!
