If you’re up to the challenge of a 40 km hike and raising funds for a good cause, then check out The Trailblaze Challenge.
The fundraising event is already popular throughout the US. Make-A-Wish BC and Yukon are bringing it to Canada for the first time at Manning Park from September 13 to 15.
It costs $100 per hiker to register for the event.
- Concerned Vancouverites call for ban on synthetic turf fields after tests confirm lead
- Liberals reveal plan to ban all single-use plastics in Canada
- Most British Columbians want slower speeds on residential streets
Participants are asked to help fundraise $2,000 before the weekend of the challenge.
The money goes towards Make-A-Wish’s cause; granting wishes to children who are battling critical illnesses.
Wish parent Magda Stoltman will also be joining in on the hike. Her son Ryker, 4, was able to go to Disney World last year because of fundraisers like this one. Stoltman is participating as a way to give back to Make-A-Wish.
Worried about fueling up for the long hike? All attendees will be served a pasta dinner to load up on carbs the night before the event and on Sunday morning, a big celebration breakfast will be served.
All fitness levels are encouraged to register for the challenge. And although training is not required to participate, they do encourage it.
Register for the event from now until Sunday, July 14. Spots are limited and half of the spaces are already filled.
