This is something that I have never tried before - and if you asked my 20 year old self if I would be thinking of or be capable of hiking 40 kilometres in one day at the age of forty-something (ha ha), I would have said, "Hell, NO!". But things happen...and now I am training for and participating in the TRAILBLAZE CHALLENGE which is a one-day 40km hike in Manning Park this coming September. Along with my dear friend, Tiffany Bergen, I will be raising much needed funds to grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses throughout BC and the Yukon. A wish come true helps children feel stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to battle their life-threatening medical condition. For many of them, it marks a turning point in their fight against their illnesses.
You can help me make a difference! Your support will allow Make-A-Wish to continue to create powerful wish experiences, improve a child’s state of mind, replacing fear with happiness and helping them to feel like a normal kid again.
