Volunteer Spotlight

We would like to recognize volunteers that have gone above and beyond the call of duty to make the wish experience memorable for our Wish Families. Each month we will be thanking one of our dedicated volunteers with a short write-up.

All of our volunteers are simply amazing, and we thank you deeply for your involvement with Make-A-Wish. To nominate a fellow volunteer, please email Community Engagement Specialist Annalise Sansouci at and tell us why they deserve a shout out. Thanks again for all that you do.


Beth Maycroft

For the month of March, we will be spotlighting Beth Maycroft as our volunteer of the month! Beth first became involved with Make-A-Wish in 2013 as a participant for the Trailblaze Challenge. Since then, she has continued growing her involvement with the event by helping during countless Trailblaze Challenge hike weekends and also encouraging others to participate in the event. Although the Trailblaze Challenge holds a special place in Beth’s heart, and is definitely her favorite event, she’s also enjoyed being part of the Wish Ball and the Pitchin’ for Wishes Cornhole Tournament.

Throughout her time working with Make-A-Wish, Beth’s most rewarding moment was when she met wish kid Sam at a Trailblaze Challenge information meeting. She explains, “Sam’s determination to get her doctor’s consent to participate in the Trailblaze Challenge was amazing. I was also able to be trail support the weekend she hiked and saw her accomplish her goal of hiking 28.3 miles - while doing it with a smile on her face!”

If she could have one wish, Beth would want to go to Alaska and experience the Northern Lights. Beth’s adventurous nature is particularly shown through her favorite quote: “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Except for bears, bears will kill you.”
