|Help me grant wishes for Mid-Atlantic Kids By Supporting the Trailblaze Challenge!|
|Last September, I joined the Community Leadership Council of Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic. We're the local chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which grants wishes for kids with life-threatening medical conditions. |
Within the last year, the Council raised enough funds to grant the Christmas wish of a six-year-old girl with leukemia; wrapped Christmas gifts at the local mall in exchange for donations; cheered on an 8-year-old boy with Cystic Fibrosis as he fulfilled his wish to be a K-9 cop; and held our annual Night Under the Stars Gala. This year, our Council has raised more than $130,000 to help grant wishes for 450 kids in the Mid-Atlantic region.
This September, I'll participate in the Trailblaze Challenge as part of my service to the Council. Within one day, I'll hike the entire Catoctin Trail in Western Maryland - a 26.6-mile journey. The goal is to complete this challenge in one day, rain or shine, while raising $2,500 for Make-A-Wish.
Thanks for helping me reach my goal to help grant wishes for local families. Every little bit means more than you know!
