Make-A-Wish Georgia Launches Trailblaze Challenge

Make-A-Wish Georgia is excited to announce it's very first hiking event, The Trailblaze Challenge, which will raise money for children in Georgia that have qualified to receive a wish from the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The actual hike is 17 miles and will take place September 14th - 16th, 2018 on the Bartram Trail in Clayton, GA. However, we will also host informational meetings, trainings, and provide tools for fundraising throughout the year. Our first informational session is Wednesday, March 7th at Redbrick Brewing in Atlanta at 6pm. Here we will discuss a lot of the details over some cold beer -- All to raise money for local kids that are waiting for their wishes" If anyone is interested in this event, please contact them at kdiehl@georgia.wish.org


As part of the Trailblaze Challenge you will recieve a dri-fit shirt for the hike, transportation to and from the trail on Hike Day, a Friday night Pasta Party to carb load before the big day, trail support at multiple locations throughout your journey, including hydration, snacks, first aid and encouragement, a Saturday evening post-hike celebration to share trail stories, and a Sunday post-hike Recognition Breakfast before heading home.
