Benefiting Make-A-Wish® Michigan

2020 Trailblaze Greeting

The Trailblaze Challenge is a 21 mile hike where participants can tackle the terrain of the Jordan Valley Pathway - all in one amazing day! This is a hike, not a race, and caters to all levels from novice to advanced outdoor enthusiasts.

As well as being an extraordinary physical test, the real challenge is to raise much-needed funds to grant the wishes of children in Michigan with critical illnesses. A wish gives children renewed energy and strength, brings families closer together and unites communities. Right now there are more than 800 Michigan children in need of a wish come true. You have the power to transform the lives of these wish kids and families. 

By supporting the Trailblaze Challenge, you will help Make-A-Wish Michigan grant even more wishes this year.

How Do I Get Started?

To begin your journey, you'll need to attend an informational meeting. These meetings are designed to inform you about the mission of Make-A-Wish and describe in-detail the weekend-long hike event.

Info sessions fill up quickly - RSVP today to reserve your spot!
