I am so excited to take on this year’s Trailblaze Challenge for Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic. I'm ready to challenge myself physically and philanthropically to support wish kids, but I need your help!
Every day, I see firsthand the impact a wish can have for a child battling critical illness. A wish can bring a smile to their face when they need it most, and gives them the strength to fight harder and longer against their illnesses. In 2018, Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic granted 451 wishes, but for every wish granted there's at least one other eligible child waiting for their one true wish. I’m fundraising so more local kids and their families can know the happiness, relief and renewal a wish can bring.
While I know hiking 26.6 miles in one day will not be easy by any means, I also know what I experience that day will pale in comparison to what these kids face every day in their medical battles. Each one of them deserves something special to help them fight on; each one of them deserves a wish.
Please help me and Make-A-Wish grant more wishes to more children by donating to my Trailblaze Challenge fundraiser. Any amount big or small can make a difference in the lives of local kids. Thank you for your support!
