Spring Minis for Make-A-Wish

Upon moving to Greenville, my husband and I knew we wanted to take part in two things. We wanted to join a hiking club and learn the trails in the area, and we wanted to give back to the community through photography. We had no idea fate had already lined us up with the perfect opportunity!


After some quick networking and meeting new friends, we learned about the Trailblaze Challenge which is a 28.3 mile hike that takes place on May 4th. In order to be a part of this hike, there are two requirements. One is that you have to train every weekend and the other is that you have to raise a minimum amount of money for Make-A-Wish. Fast forward to a few months later, and we're over half way through with our training and fundraising!

The Trailblaze experience so far has been amazing. It's been great getting to meet new friends, hike the trails, learn about Make-A-Wish and all they do, and network with businesses for fundraising opportunities. I've made some friends at the Farehouse, Wellborn Winery, and Ji=Roz because of it! I've even connected with a summer camp director through these hikes to capture photos during two summer camps this year with the Bi-Lo Charities Children's Cancer Center (and I CAN'T WAIT)!

Meet Tony and Debbie with Wellborn Winery! They'll be hosting a fundraiser for our cause on April 13th!

Simply Marie Photography is also going to give back by donating 100% of the session costs to Make-A-Wish! Not only are we offering discounted photography sessions to get your Spring started with a fun and fresh family session, but you can also feel great about your purchase knowing that it's all going towards Make-A-Wish and local kids' wishes who need them!


Make-A-Wish is an amazing organization that we plan to be involved with even after the hike is completed in May 4th. It's touched my heart in many ways, and it's amazing to hear and see the good this organization does for those who need that wish to give them strength, happiness, encouragement, and most importantly... hope!
