In a few hours I will be hiking 26.5 miles from Hanging Rock State Park to the top of Pilot Mountain. This is all part of a fundraiser my wife and I are taking part in for Make-A-Wish of Eastern NC. So far, our team of six has raised nearly $17,000.
Make-A-Wish is an organization that grants wishes of children who are battling life-threatening illnesses. I know that whatever discomfort we feel during this hike on Saturday, it’s nothing like what these kids go through.
I hope you will take a moment to pray for us and the other hikers on this journey as well as for the children we are helping.
If you’d like to help, there’s still time! You can make a contribution on our donation page. Donations are tax deductible and go directly to Make-A-Wish.
