Live adventure and give adventure at the second annual Discover Outdoors Foundation Hike-a-Thon! Take on the challenge of hiking on the Appalachian Trail and help the Discover Outdoors Foundation while doing it.
The goal of the Discover Outdoors Foundation is to help every member the next generation fall in love with the outdoors, regardless of where they call home. We believe that every kid should have the chance to experience the accomplishment of climbing a mountain, the wonder of seeing a science lesson brought to life outside, the solace of a walk in the woods, and the joy of camping out with a group of friends.
Add meaning to your miles as we hike along the historic AT and then join together for a picnic celebration. Whether you take on the full eighteen mile or the two peak challenge (nine miles), every step will go toward providing life-changing outdoor adventure to New York City's students. Gather your team and get ready for a party!
