Trailblaze Challenge

Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic | October 9-11 

Challenge yourself mentally, physically and philanthropically by signing up for the Make-A-Wish® Trailblaze Challenge. Local children are waiting to receive their one true wish – you can help change their lives.

The Trailblaze Challenge is a one-day endurance event that gives participants the opportunity to hike a 26.6-mile journey along the terrain of the Catoctin Trail in western Maryland. Participants will enjoy the picturesque mountains of northern Maryland, challenging themselves physically while raising much-needed funds to grant the wishes of children with critical illness in the Mid-Atlantic region. This hike is not a race and all hikers must be 18 years or older. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, October 10, 2020.
