BENEFITING: Discover Outdoors Foundation
ORGANIZER: Discover Outdoors Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Mileage Tracker: 1,000
It's official world - I am going to run or hike 1,000 miles in 2016, with the final push coming at the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon! And why am I doing it? I'm doing it for the Discover Outdoors Foundation and because it means I can share two of my passions with the world: running and the outdoors. These two things have helped shape me into who I am today: a strong, independent, curious woman. My time on the trail has allowed me learn about myself and the world around me and I have made it a goal of my life to allow others to do the same.
Please help me and support the Discover Outdoors Foundation's mission of giving underserved kids a chance to experience everything the natural world has to offer!

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 or the resources they have. The outdoors can be the key to confidence, curiosity, a healthy lifestyle, positive attitude, and lifelong friendships. We believe that every child 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.
