Fairway Subaru joins Make-A-Wish South Carolina as the Trailblaze Challenge presenting sponsor

January 15, 2024

Hope can radically change the narrative in a child’s battle against a critical illness. Subaru Loves to Care® and understands the power of hope. So, this year Fairway Subaru has partnered with Make-A-Wish® South Carolina to be the presenting sponsor for Trailblaze Challenge®.

Trailblaze Challenge is a popular and beloved outdoor journey that invites hikers of all levels to support Make-A-Wish South Carolina families, enjoy and explore the outdoors on 20+ mile endurance hikes, and build South Carolina pride and community through an all-inclusive hike experience.

As well as being an extraordinary physical test through an endurance hike, the real challenge is to raise much needed funds to grant the wishes of children in South Carolina with critical illnesses. A wish gives children renewed energy and strength, brings families closer together and unites communities. Trailblaze Challenge is designed as a symbolic journey to a wish child’s own journey and participants receive an unparalleled view into the world of wish granting.

Fairway Subaru, through the Love Promise® works in many areas of the community to support values shared with Trailblaze Challenge – care for one another, care for our planet, and the betterment of individual health and wellness.

“We are privileged to serve as the presenting sponsor for the Make-A-Wish Trailblaze Challenge,” said Foster McKissick IV, President of Fairway Automotive Group. “Fulfilling wishes for children confronting illness is a meaningful contribution to building a more vibrant Greenville community. We eagerly anticipate playing a more significant role in this inspirational hike as our friends in the Upstate region raise funds to support local wish children. A heartfelt thank you to our exceptional partners and friends at Make-A-Wish South Carolina for this opportunity.”

“We are thrilled to have Fairway Subaru as the presenting sponsor for Trailblaze Challenge,” said Misty Farmer, President and CEO of Make-A-Wish South Carolina. “Their brand is a natural fit for Trailblaze Challenge, offering their customers adventures and journeys each day. In addition, they have spread so much joy to wish families by hosting wish celebrations for local children in their showroom and supporting our chapter as it’s Hometown Charity during the 2023 Subaru Share the Love Event. Our hikers know and love Fairway Subaru and by officially joining us as a presenting sponsor, Fairway has strengthened their consumer loyalty from our dedicated constituents.”

Fairway Subaru and Make-A-Wish South Carolina invite individuals to sign up now for the spring 2024 hike season. This season, individuals will journey with us for wishes on The Palmetto Trail. The Palmetto Trail traverses the entire Palmetto State – just like our wishes do – from the mountains to the sea. Hikers have the freedom to choose one of three beautiful but challenging hikes that showcase the incredible diversity of our state. To get started, interested individuals should RSVP for an information meeting at http://site.wish.org/spring2024.

Information meetings are free and designed to describe in detail the weekend-long event. Meetings in the Upstate will be held at the Make-A-Wish office in Greenville.
