Trailblaze Challenge 2017

Make-A-Wish Mississippi held our third Trailblaze Challenge on June 3, 2017. 18 hikers, 7 hike leaders, 3 medical staff, 8 MAW staff headed to the Trails at 4:15 am on Saturday morning. The fresh sent of Pine and the beautiful scenery made for a wonderful day in the great outdoors. All the hikers wore a pin with a different wish child’s face on their backpacks as encouragement throughout their journey. Through all the challenges they faced between climbing hills, crossing rock gardens and streams, they pulled together as a tribe and developed friendships that will last a lifetime. At the finish line, they were given a medal by wish child Auston. Thank you to each one of these hikers for helping us with our mission to grant wishes for children who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness.
