Benefiting Make-A-Wish® Greater Los Angeles


Finish Line-2019

Due to public health concerns surrounding coronavirus, Make-A-Wish Greater Los Angeles made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 hike weekend. However, we are full steam ahead for the 2021 Trailblaze Challenge. We’re so grateful for the support and hard work of our fundraisers and promise to do everything we can to make this a fun and safe experience. 

Hike for Wishes! If you crave adventure, love the outdoors and welcome a challenge, then this is the experience for you! Through the Trailblaze Challenge, you will challenge yourself, meet new people and help grant life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.

Designed as an endurance event, the Trailblaze Challenge is a 15-20 mile hike where participants tackle the beautiful terrain of Los Angeles - all in one amazing day! This is a hike, not a race, and caters to all levels from novice to advanced outdoor enthusiasts.

By supporting the Trailblaze Challenge, participants help Make-A-Wish Greater Los Angeles grant more wishes. Take the opportunity to push your limits and truly challenge yourself. Grab your friends, family and co-workers and truly make a difference. 

How Do I Get Started?

To begin your journey, you'll need to attend an information meeting or watch a recorded webinar. These meetings are designed to inform you about the mission of Make-A-Wish and describe in-detail the weekend-long hike event, and all of the training and support that comes with it!

In-person info sessions are cancelled for 2021, but if you are still interested, you can watch the information webinar today to get the information you need!
