Starting May 19th, every kilometre tracked as part of the 10-week Trailblaze For Wishes — a new and easy walk/run/hike event from Make-A-Wish® Canada — will help create hope for children with critical illnesses waiting for wishes to be granted, and organizers want you to sign up today.

There is no cost to register for the event, and participants can sign up as an individual or as part of a team. Over the course of the virtual challenge, participants will set their preferred distance, go at their own pace, choose their own fundraising goals and have a shot at some exciting prizes. Though most of the world has shut down, the hope of a wish has remained essential. Five-year-old Bella, who’s living with a serious heart condition, is still dreaming of the day her wish will be granted. Bella is the Wish Child Ambassador for the PEI event site, representing all Island wish children. Make-Wish PEI is currently working on wishes for 42 Island children living with critical illnesses.
