Welcome to my page!

I am taking part in the Make-A-Wish Trailblaze for Wishes event this summer. 


I have a personal reason for giving back. My son Deven is a wish child. He has a condition called Neurofibromatosis (NF1)  which causes many life challenges some of which, for Deven include brain tumors, learning disabilities, ADHD to name just a few. Deven shared his wish in 2015 with his twin sister and family when he took them all on his trip to Disney. Knowing Roary and blue Yoshi  were by his side through 2.5 years of chemotherapy and that at the end of it all he would get to have his wish of meeting lightening Macqueen, was indescribable and we could never pay back in a million years the joy we felt as a family on that trip. So giving back is the only way we can hope to repay and knowing some child will also feel this power of a wish... makes the many km's worth every step i take. 


PLEASE HELP US GIVE BACK

Make-A-Wish® Trailblaze for Wishes is a 10-week virtual challenge which asks you to Hike, Walk  or  Run your chosen challenge distance — 50KM, 100KM or 200KM. I’m excited to be take part, get outdoors and raise much needed funds to help children with critical illnesses this summer.

Make-A-Wish wants to bring every eligible child’s wish to life, but right now, thousands of wishes are waiting due to COVID-19.

When a wish is granted, a child replaces fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope. 

Will you support me, so that together, we can make sure that when life returns to normal, no child must wait for their already delayed wish?
