BENEFITING: Discover Outdoors Foundation
EVENT DATE: Jul 02, 2013
The Discover Outdoors Foundation began in 2012 with a singular focus: increasing graduation rates in our urban schools through education experienced in the outdoors. Inspired by the positive impact our for-profit business, Discover Outdoors, was making through our youth leadership program, we soon felt compelled to serve our entire community, not just those who could afford it. Since then, the path for students has taken a different course: one that leads to a diploma and a brighter future.
By climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, you will be on the team that raises $50,000 to give deserving students the opportunity to learn, grow, and lead through outdoor experiences.
Specifically, your generous support will allow:
- 1,000 students to participate in our outdoor leadership programs
- 20 teachers to receive training to become outdoor instructors
- 3 outstanding students to receive college scholarships
Our highly skilled, expert guides lead kids on safe, fun, and challenging dayhikes and overnight backpacks in beautiful state parks. Within minutes of arriving, our students are exploring the environment with compasses and magnifying glasses. They hike, climb, and discover. They stretch themselves physically and mentally. They develop skills and become leaders in their schools and communities.
Thank you for giving these students the opportunities they deserve.
