The Cairn Project

THE STORY:

The Cairn Project unites a community that is passionate about expanding outdoor adventure for women of all ages.

Please learn more at: http://www.cairnproject.org

Through an adventure-driven, community-based funding model, we support programs that expand outdoor and wilderness opportunities for pre-teen and teenage women. For a broader community of women seeking to further their outdoor passions, we are creating a platform to share information, resources, and stories that inspire adventure.

The Inaugural Fundraiser: Hiking the JMT

To launch the The Cairn Project, co-founders Sarah Castle and Alison Wright are embarking on a joint hike of the John Muir Trail to raise awareness of and support for our mission. The funds we raise will support outdoor programs for young women in California, Colorado, Montana, Oregon, and Washington, and will help seed the next steps for our organization. 

Named for one of America's best loved wilderness explorers, the JMT is a long distance hiking route that follows the crest of the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. From its northern terminus in Yosemite Valley, it passes through several Wilderness Areas, Devils Postpile National Monument, and Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. The JMT ends at the summit of Mt. Whitney, the highest point in the Lower 48 (14,505 ft).

Sarah and Alison will be completing this hike in a challenging 12 day itineary.

Our inspiration is to foster the rising generation of our future leaders and stewards. We know from personal experience that outdoor experiences can be truly transformative for young women — seeding self-esteem, inner strength, and the tenacity to embrace the unexpected.

Thank you so much for supporting our inaugural fundraiser and joining our community! We are so grateful for your support.

You go gals! The JMT in 12 days is a stiff pace. It should be a great time of year and the creeks will hopefully be low and easily crossable. I did the JMT in 2008 over 20 days and was tuckered out by the end - but I am older! Enjoy yourselves and in the process spread your spirit to other young women as a result. 12 months ago
