2024 Fall Trailblaze Challenge - Cashiers, NC

We Heard There Would Be Tacos

The best views come after the hardest climb.


We heard there might be a taco bar after the hike, so here we are! But seriously, the forest and the trails have given so much to us in the way of physical and mental health, and now we are ready to give back! We are excited to take on this year's Trailblaze Challenge in October 2024. We will be hiking 28.3 miles along the Foothills Trail in one day (yes, one longggggg day)! It's a big challenge, but it feels smaller when we consider the trials and struggles faced by children with critical illnesses. We have a lofty fundraising goal, but we know with your help we can accompish anything!

We are thrilled to take on this year’s Trailblaze Challenge. In addition to the physical challenge, we have committed ourselves to raising the essential funds necessary for Make-A-Wish to help grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses. With your help, proving hope and joy during these uncertain times is possible.    


Wish kids are some of the most resilient and sweetest kids you'll ever know. The one true vision of a wish may vary from trip to a pickle factory, become a superhero, 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, and now more than ever every child needs something positive to look forward to. We’re fundraising so more deserving kids and their families may know the true 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.  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.
