Benefiting Make-A-Wish® Greater Los Angeles
Originally scheduled for May 9, 2020, Trailblaze weekend has been postponed due to public health concerns surrounding coronavirus. Make-A-Wish Greater LA is working with our partners at Big Bear Mountain to reschedule the event for later in the year when restrictions have been lifted and we can provide a safe and healthy environment for all. We’re so grateful for the support and hard work of our fundraisers and promise to do everything we can to make this a seamless and positive experience. A new date for Trailblaze 2020 will be announced ASAP. We hope you stay safe and healthy!
Hike for Wishes! If you crave adventure, love the outdoors and welcome a challenge, then this is the experience for you! Through the Trailblaze Challenge, you will challenge yourself, meet new people and help grant life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.
Designed as an endurance event, the Trailblaze Challenge is a 28-mile hike where participants tackle the beautiful terrain of the Pacific Crest Trail - all in one amazing day! This is a hike, not a race, and caters to all levels from novice to advanced outdoor enthusiasts.
By supporting the Trailblaze Challenge, participants help Make-A-Wish Greater Los Angeles grant more wishes. Take the opportunity to push your limits and truly challenge yourself. Grab your friends, family and co-workers and truly make a difference.
