|Join me in my efforts to support Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central and Western North Carolina!|
|"If you could wish for anything, what would it be?" Since 1985, more than 4,500 magical wishes have been born by Make-A-Wish® Central and Western North Carolina as a result of this simple, yet profound, question. And for wish-kids... the answer can be as simple as a battery-operated toy jeep or as imaginative as flying like a fairy princess or becoming a superhero.|
Make-A-Wish® grants the wishes of local children fighting a very grown-up battle: a life-threatening medical condition. As a Trailblaze Challenge participant (and a mother - blessed with two beautiful, healthy kids), I’m so excited for this opportunity to give hope, strength and joy to courageous local children in the form of a wish-come-true.
The experience of a wish... is immeasurable. It’s a cherished, comforting memory that becomes engrained with a family forever. The Central and Western North Carolina chapter grants more than 360 wishes each year at an average cost of $6,000 per wish, but they can't do it without help.
Bring a little magic into a special kid's life- and into your own. Please help me raise $2,500 to grant two children's wishes by contributing $30, $50, $100 or even more! Your donation – no matter the amount- will make an immediate, direct and substantial impact on the life of a local child.
Together, we can change the lives of seriously ill kids and their families. Thank you - so much - for your support!
This is a true challenge - in the fall, 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.
