Team Unicorn rides again!
It's hard to believe it has already been three years since Carly's wish to go to London and Paris was granted. It is even harder to believe that I have signed up to participate in the Trailblaze Challenge again. Since Team Unicorn began participating the the Trailblaze Challenge we have raised over $25,000 for Make-a-Wish Connecticut! This year I will be joined by my friends Cheryl, Melissa, and Tom for the 26.2 mile trek. In addition to the physical challenge, I have committed myself to raising money for Make-A-Wish to help grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses. We are on track to raise an additional $10,000.
Make-a-Wish continues to hold a special place in our family. We enjoy volunteering and participating in activities throughout the year. The Trailblaze Challenge weekend is something we all look forward to. We have met so many amazing people who return year after year just like we do. There is nothing more humbling than being surrounded by people who truly understand what they are doing makes a difference. I have no doubt that Carly's early interactions with Make-a-Wish helped form her into the confident public speaker she is today. She has one mission in mind...to make sure all deserving kids are able to have their wishes granted.
