Make a Wish Come True Here! 1 May 2019

Dear friends, family, and those of you I’ve never met:

If you don’t read any further than this, click here: Educators in the Hills

Have you ever wanted to change someone’s life? I know I have – that’s why I am participating in the 2019 Trailblaze Challenge with my hiking partner Elaine and raising money for my local Make-A-Wish® chapter. And I want you to join us by spreading the word about what Elaine and I are trying to accomplish. We’ll be hiking 23.7 miles of the Colorado Trail on August 10th. The good news is that you don’t have to slog along with us; you can simply enjoy our stories and support the wishes of some awesome kids by donating towards our goal which we hope to exceed!

Together, we can raise money to help grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses. Their wishes and afflictions may vary, but something unites each of them: the need to feel optimistic and to think about something greater than their next medical treatment.

Will you join me and Educators in the Hills (Hey, we had to have a team name!) as we raise the much-needed funds to support Make-A-Wish? Many of you know that Elaine and I hike weekly in the summer, and we’ve decided that this summer our goal and purpose will be to help make some wishes come true for some very special kiddos!

We really believe that wishes change lives. Doctors, parents and wish kids share so many stories about how wishes inspire hope and build emotional strength that kids need to fight a critical illness. Together, we can make more stories like this happen.

Our goal is to exceed $5000.00 and I think we can!

Please visit our fundraising Web page to donate today! And thanks in advance for your support.
