The Trailblaze Challenge is a 22-mile hike where participants can tackle the terrain of the Waterloo-Pinckney Trail - 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 with critical illnesses in Michigan. 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 a wish brings.

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

"He's never felt special, no matter how much we try to show him. All the effort and support from family and friends helped him see that he is important. It made him feel special."
