|You can help give kids hope!|
|I've accepted the Trailblaze Challenge! Iím training to hike 26.3 miles on May 5 and to raise money to grant wishes for 300 children currently waiting on a wish.|
Make A Wish grants wishes to children with life threatening medical conditions. The dream-come-true memories that these wishes provide for these children and their families are priceless, lasting memories for them to cherish forever.
My family has always been one to give and help others but we never had a clear vision of how to do that effectively. We had heard of Make A Wish, like you may have, but we werenít familiar with what Wish Children and Wish Families go through and what these wishes mean to them. That was until a friend of ours was diagnosed with a rare form of childhood cancer. Since the day we heard that news, almost 4 years ago, our family has worked in a variety of ways to support our friend and other children like her. I donít think there are any people out there more deserving of the happiness and hope provided by these wishes.
We no longer take for granted our health and well being or that of our children. We realize more than ever what a gift we've been given. We realize there are ways we can use our time, talent, ability, and good fortune to lift others up. This challenge is a perfect way for me to raise money to provide the One True Wish of the 300 children Wish Kids in Alabama. My love of the outdoors, my ability to walk for days, and my wish to help bring light and happiness to others all make me very excited about this challenge. It won't be easy but it will be well worth it.
I hope that you will support me in my goal to raise money to give these kids and families a lasting, happy memory that is their One True Wish by donating. Thank you for your support!
