This past Saturday morning (@ 4:00 AM to be precise!) we began our epic hiking adventure on the rain soaked trails of the Berkshires as part of a group of 4 dozen headlamp wearing hikers. Almost 12 hours later, we crossed under the banner marking the completion of the 30 mile journey. Thanks to your generous support we raised over $5,000 to help make wishes a reality for some very special kids and their families. We were fortunate to meet several Wish Kids including Carly, who got to visit London and Paris and has been cancer free for 1 year now. We hiked with her dad for much of the day and learned about how the team at Make-A-Wish works to deliver these amazing experiences.
The inaugural Trailblaze Challenge received financial support from over 1,000 individual donors as well as a small group of corporate sponsors (including TrailHeads!). As of this past week, the total funds raised exceeded $100,000! This money will soon be put to use in delivering life changing experiences for some very special kids. Thank you once again!
