Join us as we make wishes come true, one step at a time!

The Trailblaze Challenge is a 24.8 mile hike where participants can tackle the terrain of the Sauratown Trail and all in one amazing day! This is a hike, not a race, and caters to all levels from novice to advanced outdoor enthusiasts. As well as being an extraordinary physical test, the real challenge is to raise much needed funds to grant the wishes of children in eastern North Carolina with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich their lives with hope, strength and joy. By supporting the Trailblaze Challenge, you will help Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina grant more than 200 wishes this year.

Begin Your Journey Today: The Trailblaze Challenge is open to a limited number of registrants. If you are interested in learning more or want to sign up, please email Luanne,

Hike Weekend Friday, September 30 - Sunday, October 2

Make-A-Wish® Eastern North Carolina is committed to upholding the standards of Leave No Trace outdoor ethics. We aim to create a philanthropic event that is as equally responsible as it is fun.
