I have once again decided to take on the San Diego Make-A-Wish Trailblaze Challenge – hiking 28 miles in 1-day on the Pacific Crest Trail in Big Bear. In addition to the physical challenge, I have committed to raising $10,000 for Make-A-Wish. Your donation will help grant the wishes of local children with critical illnesses.
Wish kids are some of the bravest and sweetest children you will ever know. This year saw some big changes in their wishes. Instead of a trip to Disneyland their wishes are ranging from enjoying a backyard playground, having a ballet studio in their home, having a camper so the family can enjoy time outdoors together, and they still want to push all the buttons in a tall building's elevator. Their innocence and unexpected wisdom stays with you.
Make-A-Wish San Diego has over 350 children waiting for their wishes to be granted. The goal is to grant every one of them. I am hiking and fundraising so more deserving children and their families can know the happiness, healing, and renewal of spirit a wish can bring.
As an added incentive Alaska Airlines has generously donated 2 round trip main cabin tickets. Beginning today through May 31, 2021, donors who contribute $100 or more can choose to opt-in to this raffle and will have the chance to win.
I will be hiking on May 21, 2021. Please keep us in your thoughts on that day. Thank you for your support of Trailblaze Challenge and Make-A-Wish.
