Welcome to our team's page!
Our team is taking part in the Make-A-Wish Trailblaze for Wishes event this summer.
Welcome to our page; we're glad you made it! Being physically active was once such an enjoyment to me in my teens and early 20's. Unfortunately, I retreated from sports/ athletics throughout the past couple of decades. With time I became heavier and struggled with weight. At the start of May I started running to become healthier. While Googling tips for better methods of running I came across this site, "Make a Wish Trailblaze Challenge." I have always loved the objective of this organization! I found out this challenge started May 18th, but I am still able to enter. My daughter Sarah agreed to support me by joining in this challenge - thanks Sarah!
Here is what we have pledged to do! Although late getting started in the challenge, I have put myself in to do the maximum 200km. Sarah has put herself in to do 100km. We will only be counting our km's from the day we registered (June 7). We will be running, not walking or hiking. We set a steep goal of trying to raise $10 000. I understand that might be a high goal, but we really want to smash this challenge for children that are terminally ill or sick. Whatever difference we can make will mean so much to these kids!What we are looking for is of course pledges, but we are also asking that you help us by reaching out to various contacts/ companies you are involved with or know. We encourage you to share our page, what we are doing and encourage others to support this worthy cause. The time and effort in doing that would be greatly appreciated by both of us and more so by 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?
