Just heard about this great opportunity on the radio to be a part of the Make a Wish Foundation Trailblaze Challenge! It's a 28.3 mile hike, designed as an endurance event on the Foothills Trail. This event will raise funds to grant wishes to children in South Carolina that have life-threatening medical conditions. According to the SC Trail Blaze Challenge website, more than 160 wishes will be granted statewide this year.
According to the foothillstrail.org website, the Foothills Trail is a 77-mile National Recreation Trail, located in Upstate South Carolina, and Western North Carolina. It extends from Table Rock State Park to Oconee State Park
Pine Bark Outfitters will be joining in on the challenge, and there will be more to come as the date approaches. The hike in Fall 2016 is schedule for the weekend of October 21st.
