|On October 1, Iíll be participating in the Trailblaze Challenge, hiking 30 miles in Massachusetts' Savoy Mountain State Forest to benefit Make-A-Wish Connecticut. My goal is to complete this challenge in one day - rain or shine - and raise $2,500 to help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. |
Make-A-Wish has found that granting a wish is often the best medicine possible:
* 74% of Wish parents observed that the wish experience marked a turning point in their child's response to treatment
* 85% of parents observed a decrease in their child's anxieties or fears
* 91% of parents and 75% of health professionals observed that the Wish experience decreased their childís depression or sadness
I'm tackling this challenge to make a difference in the lives of Wish kids and to prove to myself that I'm capable of accomplishing this demanding physical endeavor.
Please support the mission of Make-A-Wish by making a tax-deductible donation today. No amount is too small.
Thanks in advance for your help!
