There are two things that I am passionate about in my life; one is the outdoors and the other is helping kids! I am excited to say that I have an opportunity to do both with the TRAILBLAZE CHALLENGE. This challenge is a one-day 40 km hike that I will be doing in order to help kid’s wishes come true! All proceeds will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
For the past eleven years, I have had the privilege of volunteering with the Make-A-Wish Foundation. In what might be a very scary time in a child’s life, I’ve seen wishes bring joy, hope, a sense of togetherness and, of course, pure magic! Through a wish, a kid feels empowered, stronger and most importantly not alone. As a wish unfolds, it is usual to see the entire family become lifted and energized, you see friends and family become involved and you see how a community comes together. This strength in numbers and the ability to focus on something positive is priceless and often gives the child and the family a boost to tackle the next step in their lives.
This is something you can be a part of as every donation matters and makes a true difference. I’m embarking on this challenge to highlight Make-A-Wish and to bring smiles to even more kids and their families for years to come.
If you would like to know more, please do not hesitate to ask. I would be happy to hear from any of you!
