New location! New Adventures! One Amazing Day!

New this year the Trailblaze Challenge is offering a 22-mile or 2-mile hike where participants can tackle the terrain of the Pinckney State Recreation Area - 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 [chapter area] with critical illnesses. Now more than ever, hope is essential. Make-A-Wish is committed to ensuring that no eligible child waits to experience the hope and joy that a wish brings.
