I am excited to take on this year’s Trailblaze Challenge! In addition to the physical challenge of hiking 23.4 miles on September 23rd, I have committed myself to raising the critical funds necessary for Make-A-Wish to grant the one true wish for each eligible child with a critical illness. With your help, it’s possible.
I have worked as the Wish Manager for Make-A-Wish Maine for 6 years, which has allowed me the opportunity to see firsthand the incredible impact that a wish has on the child, their family, and the community.
Did you know that Make-A-Wish grants more than 15,000 wishes nationwide every year? That’s a lot, yes. But that’s only 50% of the eligible kids. Every hour of every day, on average, three children are diagnosed with a critical illness. Every one of these kids needs a wish to give them strength and help them heal. I’m fundraising so more deserving kids and their families can know the true happiness, relief and renewal a wish can bring.
All of the money raised in Maine stays right here to help grant wishes of children in our communities. I can't tell you how many times we hear from a child that the wish was the best day of their life, or that the wish was the light at the end of the tunnel that helped them keep pushing through.
These essential wishes are only possible because of supporters like you. Together, we are transforming lives and providing more "best days"- One wish at a time!
