I need to start this by saying my girlfriend Michele is amazing. She runs as much as I play pinball, maybe more. She's done 5Ks, 10Ks, The Beach to Beacon, half marathons, you name it. She also works out just about every day of the week. She's dedicated, persistent and does it because she enjoys it. Now she's taking on a new challenge and this one is a big one.

She's going to be doing the 2019 Trailblaze Challenge at Carrabassett Valley to help raise funds for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. It's a 23.4 mile hike on the Maine Hut Trail that she wants to tackle not only for herself but to help out the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Not a day goes by that it doesn't amaze me how dedicated she is to running and now hiking. She's been training with 3 and 4 hour hikes for several weeks now for the big day on September 28.

She needs to raise $2500 to help the Make-A-Wish Foundation reach their goal of $100,000 and every single dollar helps. So if you can help make her goal, both she and I would be extremely grateful.

You can learn more about the Trailblaze Challenge below. I've also included a link to Michele's donation page if you'd like to help out. Thanks!
