Join me in my efforts to support Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central and Western North Carolina!

Welcome. I am participating in the Make-A-Wish Trailblaze Challenge to raise funds and grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich their lives with hope, strength and joy. With your help, I know that I can surpass my personal goal. Please donate. It will make a difference.

This is a true challenge - in the spring, I will hike 28.3 miles of the Foothills Trail in an effort to grant more wishes. Carefree days spent laughing with friends and family are put on hold as boys and girls are catapulted in to a strange and unfamiliar world filled with great uncertainty. Over the organization's 30-year history, they have found that granting a wish is often the best medicine possible. It is a prescription that changes a child’s outlook on life and generates a smile for the first time in a long time.

On a more personal note, the Make-A-Wish Foundation helped me when I was just 12 years old. My wish request had been to get an RV so that I could explore the outdoors on camping trips with my family, and before I knew it my family and I were more together than ever before. Since birth, I had been diagnosed with COPD, or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. As far back as I can remember, I have been in and out of the hospital for the majority of my childhood/adulthood life. Still at the age of 23, I find myself struggling with strenuous activities with no sign of improvement besides a more positive mental state. From time to time I think back when I was 12 years old and granted my wish, and I could never in a million years find the words to describe just how thankful I am. This is my chance to give back, so if I could help even a little bit to translate that feeling into another child's life, I would be absolutely astounded.
