Where: Catoctin Trail, MD

When: September 15, 2018

Who: Whether you are a hike enthusiast or a Make-A-Wish supporter this hike is open to participants of all levels. It’s not a race… it’s a journey, and all hikers must be 18 years of age or older.

Why: To raise awareness and funds so that Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic can continue to serve local children. For every wish granted there is at least one local wish kids waiting to receive a wish. It is estimated that 840 kids in the Mid-Atlantic region will be diagnosed with a critical illness next year alone. We rely on community members like you to help us grant these wishes.
