Welcome to my page!

Our team is taking part in the Make-A-Wish Trailblaze for Wishes event this summer.

Welcome to out Page. We're glad you made it! For those of you that know me, you know that as time progressed and life changed over the years I have gotten away from sports and athletics that I use to enjoy in my teens, and early 20's. Over time I became heavier, and struggled with weight. Very recently I just started running to become heathier. While Googling tips for better methods of running I came across this site, "Make a Wish Trailblaze Challenge." I have always though what a great organization. Upon reading further I found the challenge had started as of May 18th. I found out I could still enter the the challenge. My daughter Sarah also agreed to join so we could support each other. Thanks Sarah!

So here is what we have pledged to do! Even though we were late getting starting in the challenge, I have put myself in to do the maximum 200kmSarah has put herself in to do the 100km challenge. We will only be counting our km's from the day we registered, June 7. We will be running, not walking, or hiking. We also set a very steep goal of trying to raise $10 000.00. I understand that might be a high goal, but, it would be great to smash that for these kids that are terminally ill, or very sick in the least. But whatever difference we can make will be great!

What we are looking for is of course pledges, but we are also asking that you help us by reaching out to two, three, or even more contacts or companies you are involved with, share our page and what we are doing and give them a nudge to pledge. The time and effort in doing that would be greatly appreciated by both of us and especially the kids receiving this gift.

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. We are excited to 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 our team, so that together, we can make sure that when life returns to normal, no child must wait for their already delayed wish?
