On May 20, 2017, Symmetry Financial Group gathered to participate in the Trailblaze Challenge, an endurance event benefitting Make-A-Wish Central and Western Charlotte.
During the one day event, participants hiked 28.3 miles. Make-A-Wish provided workout plans and training sessions to help participants prepare. All proceeds went towards assisting children in the community who are battling life-threatening medical conditions.
“We reflected on the wishes we were able to help fulfill as we shared Make-A-Wish stories and encouraged each other to push through our mental and physical exhaustion,” said Jason Dockery, Director of Marketing at Symmetry Financial Group. “Thank you to all who assisted us in reaching our goal for this wonderful adventure. I would also like to give a special thanks to our Symmetry Family – we couldn’t have completed this challenge without your support.”
In total, Symmetry Financial Group raised $28,594 in donations, with each participant meeting or exceeding their set fundraising goal. As a whole, The Trailblaze Challenge funded 300 wishes. Symmetry Financial Group is proud to support organizations like Make-A-Wish and help give back to the community through fundraising efforts and events.
