Latest Status Update

  • For 14 weeks, 70 hikers have been training and fundraising to hike 26.3 miles in one day and raise money to help us grant more wishes to Alabama children. On Saturday, May 20th, these hikers completed their challenge. They have raised over $190,000 and hiked 26.3 miles on the Pinhoti Trail. We are incredibly thankful for everyone who was a part of the very first Make-A-Wish Trailblaze Challenge program in our state. Thank you for loving our wish kids and our mission. All of you are making a difference in the life of a wish child and wish family.
