I've always thought Make-A-Wish was an amazing organization but until the last few years, I have never had close conection to it. However, that all changed the last few years. I witnessed, and many of you did too, the impact that Make-A-Wish had on our sweet Averi Burke.
We are excited to take on this year’s Trailblaze Challenge. In addition to the physical challenge, we've committed ourselves to raising $20,000 for Make-A-Wish to help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses. Wish kids are some of the bravest and sweetest kids you'll ever know. Their innocence and unexpected wisdom stays with you.
We are hiking for the most special wish kid, Averi. Averi changed the lives of everyone she came in contact with during her five years. She was a fireball, and she let you know right quick that she was in charge! She was quick with hugs when you needed one, or a sassy side-eye when you needed that too! We are hiking these 28.3 miles for Averi and for the permanent way she has changed our hearts!
Please help support this great cause by joining us on the trail or helping our team - Averi's Steps - to hit our Trailblaze Challenge fundraising goal. Thank you for your support!
