I am proud to continue to serve on the board of directors of GirlVentures, a Bay Area non-profit whose mission is to inspire girls to lead through outdoor adventure, inner discovery and collective action. Their unique programming of backpacking, hiking, rock climbing, and kayaking helps girls build the self-esteem and resilience that will empower them to face the challenges of adolescence, as well as make a difference in the world around them.
This is my sixth year on the GirlVentures Board. As much as I have put into this organization, I have gotten more back. These girls' journeys are truly inspiring! Over these six years, I have gone on my own journey of renewed connection to the outdoors and I'm not looking back (a couple photos attached from Pinnacles N.P. and Mt. Shasta).
I would really appreciate your support to reach my fundraising goal of $2,000 to support the 2/3 of our course participants who receive financial support. You can also join me on the hike; bring the whole family - even the dog and/or stroller! There will be breakfast, the chance to meet our staff, hear the girls’ stories from past summer programs, and of course, the hike (it’s an easy 3 miles). I hope you can make it (see photo from last year) and thank you for your support!
