GirlVentures is hosting its annual Hike for Girls on Saturday, May 5th!
GirlVentures is a Bay Area non-profit whose mission is to inspire girls to lead through outdoor adventure, inner discovery and collective action.
As a board member, I will be hiking with GirlVentures alum, staff, fellow board members, families and friends to help raise money so all interested girls, regardless of their household income level, will be able to participate in GirlVentures' unique programming of backpacking, hiking, rock climbing, and kayaking combined with self-reflection, team-building and community engagement.
I have met several GirlVentures alum and the stories I have heard of how trips have changed their lives are amazing. These programs help 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.
For this year's hike, I hope to raise at least $2,000 which nearly covers a full scholarship for a two-week summer course participant. Please help me reach my goal!
