BENEFITING: Outward Bound, Inc.
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
Both huge lovers of the outdoors, Will and Louise are participating in this race in honor of Outward Bound because we want to share our love of wild places with as many people as possible. Raising money to support Outward Bound means helping the nation's leading experiential and outdoor education non-profit keep their mission alive to change lives through challenge and discovery, and creating more opportunity to send even more deserving people on course.
Will and Louise have experienced some amazing adventures in the great outdoors, from trekking in the high peaks of the Peruvian Andes, Swiss Alps, United States' Rockies, and Uganda's Rwenzori Mountains of the Moon... to multi-day epic cycling expeditions along the New England and California Coasts, around the shores of Lake Tahoe and through the mountains of Vermont and the desert plains of West Texas... to week-long river trips down the Allagash wilderness waterway... and weekend getaway backpacking trips in the Appalachian Mountains of our Northeast home. The wilderness is constantly calling our name. We know that when we go on these wild experiences we come back to our crazy, modern lives in the city with a renewed sense of purpose, lust for life and deep respect for all living things. The wilderness centers us, humbles our spirit and graces our lives with unmatched beauty and challenge. There would be an immense hole in our hearts without these life-changing experiences.
It is important to us that we empower others to have their own transformative experiences in the wilderness, which is why we are running our FIRST EVER HALF MARATHON TRAIL RUN and raising money to support the programs and mission of Outward Bound. That's right! This is our first half marathon trail run ever! Call us crazy if you want, but we are sharing this wild experience with all of you because we need your support to help us meet our goals!
The vision of Outward Bound is to create a more resilient and compassionate world through the development of more resilient and compassionate citizens. We think that's incredibly valuable work. Please help us support the awesome, life-changing mission of Outward Bound by contributing to our goal to raise a minimum of $2,500 and complete the Endurance Challenge Half Marathon in honor of Outward Bound USA!
