Welcome to my page for the Trailblaze Challenge!
I am taking part in the Make-A-Wish Trailblaze for Wishes event this summer.
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.
I am doing this challenge in honour and memory of Emma Clarke, one of the sweetest, strongest, and most inspiring little girls I grew close with while staying at the Ronald McDonald House. The Wish Foundation was very influential in both of our lives, and I know she was just as grateful to have had her wish granted as I am. I seen Emma’s face light up talking about princesses and Disney Land multiple times, she had her greatest wish granted and that is one of the main reasons I am so grateful for a foundation like this.
As a wish child, I know firsthand that the Wish Foundation has an incredibly positive impact on children (and their families). I never thought I'd have a critical illness that allowed me to have a wish granted, and you never do until it happens to you or someone you love. It is such an amazing foundation that brings so much joy.
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?
