Event Date: Sept. 11-13, 2020
Event Location: "Blaze Your Own Trail" Virtual Event
For More Information: Contact Sarah Ragone at or 810.522.6513

Blaze your own trail and help make wishes come true for Michigan children battling critical illnesses. By participating in the Virtual Trailblaze Challenge, you can help Make-A-Wish® Michigan continue to grant the wishes that are safe to grant today and ensure that vital funds are in place for the wishes of tomorrow.

The Challenge: Due to COVID-19, Make-A-Wish Michigan has made the necessary decision to shift Trailblaze Challenge to a virtual event. Instead of gathering for an in-person event, you can walk or hike the 21 miles over the course of hike weekend, Sept. 11-13, 2020, in your local area.

The Program: You'll receive a comprehensive training schedule and instructions on footwear and hiking gear from seasoned professionals. Make-A-Wish Michigan will make sure that you have every tool available to make you successful on and off the trail!

The Mantra: "It's not a race. It's a journey." In this program, there are no winners or losers. When you take your first step on your journey as a Trailblazer, you are paving the way for a brighter tomorrow for children right here in your community.
