Hello Friends and Family - I have worked at Make-A-Wish for over twenty years and have personally seen the difference a wish can make in the life of a child facing a critical illness over and over again. I still work here because its meaningful work, it makes a real difference, and lives up to it's basic tenants of providing hope, strength and joy. It's good people, doing good work and it doesn't get much better than that.
Frankly, I can't believe I am taking part in the TRAILBLAZE CHALLENGE, a one-day 40km hike this coming September. My very persuasive neighbour, Bernadette, who believes all things are possible, has convinced me that A - we can meet our fundraising goal and B - our legs will not let us down if we actually train for this thing. So here we go! We aren't getting any younger and it's good to do good.
The funds raised will go toward granting the wishes of children in BC and the Yukon. Every dollar counts, please consider supporting at whatever level you are willing and able to give. Your support will allow Make-A-Wish to continue to create powerful wish experiences, improving the life of a sick child and helping them to feel like a normal kid again.
