Benefiting Make-A-Wish® Eastern North Carolina



Designed as an endurance program, Trailblaze Challenge gives participants the opportunity to take on 26.5 miles in one incredible 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® Eastern North Carolina grant wishes to children in our community with critical illnesses.

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.
