Trailblaze Challenge Spring 2023 - Cashiers, NC

How Hard Can It Be?

The best views come after the hardest climb.

Dave and I are thrilled to take on this year’s Trailblaze Challenge together on Saturday, May 20. In addition to the physical challenge of hiking 28.3 miles in one day, we are excited to support our local chapter of Make-A-Wish.  We have committed ourselves to raising funds for Make-A-Wish to grant the wishes of children in our community with life-threatening medical conditions.  These wishes not only give children something to look forward to as they fight their battles, but they also allow them to just "be a kid" again. With your help, providing hope and joy during these uncertain times is possible.    

We've learned that Make-A-Wish grants more than 15,000 unique wishes nationwide each year, which is incredible.  But that’s only 50% of eligible kids, and now more than ever every child needs something positive to look forward to. We’re fundraising so that more deserving kids and their families can know the genuine happiness, relief and renewal a wish can bring. 

Please help us support this impactful mission by joining us on the trail or helping us hit our Trailblaze Challenge fundraising goal.  The funds raised will go directly to granting wishes for these very deserving children who need a ray of sunshine. Thank you for your support!

*Gifts made through this fundraising campaign are a gift to the entire Make-A-Wish mission. The needs shown are symbolic of the common wish elements associated with each wish and are only representative of our many wish-granting activities. Gifts made will not actually be used to purchase the item or grant the wish described. All gifts will be pooled to meet the needs of Make-A-Wish.
