The Make-A-Wish Trailblaze Challenge is a 14-week hiking endurance program that will culminate with a one-day, 26.3 mile hike on the Pinhoti Trail this spring. This year, we have over 100 hikers who are training and raising money as a part of this program. Please support their efforts to help grant the wishes of over 300 children currently waiting on a wish in Alabama by attending one of the events below or by donating directly to them at alabamatrailblaze.org. Please contact Valerie Gerber at itreore@nynonzn.jvfu.bet with any questions about Trailblaze Challenge. Thank you!
