Trailblaze Challenge is more than a hike. It is more than a fundraiser. Trailblaze Challenge is a life-changing endurance experience that mimics the journey BC & Yukon wish kids go through, and ultimately helps Make-A-Wish create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses in our province. 

THE CHALLENGE – 40 kilometers of Manning Park trail - This scenic trek provides participants an opportunity for adventure, fun and fitness while making a direct impact on the lives of children in our community battling critical illnesses. This is a hike, not a race, and caters to all fitness levels, from novice to advanced outdoor enthusiasts.

THE PROGRAM - You will train with and work alongside Make-A-Wish staff and experienced hike leaders to prepare you for your journey in both training and fundraising. You'll receive a personal training schedule, have the opportunity to participate in group training hikes and receive instruction on footwear and hiking gear from seasoned professionals. Make-A-Wish will make sure that you have every tool available to make you successful on and off the trail! 

THE MANTRA - "It's not a race. It's a journey." In this program, there are no winners or losers. Our goal is to bring people together to build community around families who are faced with the harsh realities of critical illnesses. When you take your first step on your journey as a Trailblazer, you are paving the way for a brighter tomorrow for children right here in your community.
