Benefiting Make-A-Wish® South Carolina


Designed as an endurance program, the Trailblaze Challenge gives participants the choice of 28.3 or 16.4 mile distances to tackle the terrain of the Foothills Trail, all in one amazing day! This is a hike, not a race, and caters to all levels from novice to advanced outdoor enthusiasts. Trailblaze Challenge is a symbolic, life-changing experience. By supporting the Trailblaze Challenge, participants help Make-A-Wish® South Carolina grant more wishes than ever statewide this year. Read more about the program here.

Take the opportunity to push your limits and truly challenge yourself. 

How do I get started? To begin your journey, you'll need to RSVP for an information meeting. These meetings are designed to inform you about the mission of Make-A-Wish and describe in-detail the weekend-long hike event. Meetings are held in a variety of locations and times to accommodate every schedule. Spring 2018 registration is now closed. We invite you to rsvp for an early bird meeting to participate in the Fall 2018 hike.
