Dearest Friends and Family,
We are excited to take on this year’s Trailblaze Challenge. In addition to the physical challenge (26.2 hiking miles in one day!) we have committed ourselves to raising money for Make-A-Wish to help grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses.
Wish kids are some of the bravest and sweetest kids you'll ever know. They wish to become authors and superheroes, go swimming with dolphins, give their baseball team new uniforms, and go on journeys that help them heal. Their innocence and unexpected wisdom stays with you forever.
Make-A-Wish, CT grants hundreds of wishes a year. As most of you know, this organization is near and dear to my heart. I have been involved in many aspects of Make A Wish, but for me, it is always about the kids. They are at the core of why I support this organization. I have seen first hand how life changing a Wish experience can be to children and families facing life threatening diagnoses.
Please help Dave and me support this great cause by joining us on the trail or helping me hit my Trailblaze Challenge fundraising goal. Please know that we are humbly grateful for any amount that you can give. I am walking for all of our wish kids, and especially those for whom I have been blessed to grant wishes: Gianna, Zach, Nick, Maria, Connor, Lynn, Lexi and Willa. You will always have a special place in my heart.
Thank you for your support, and wish us luck!!!
Xoxo, Sharon and Dave
