Campaign for our Hike for Girls Donation
As you may know, I serve on the board of directors of GirlVentures (http://www.girlventures.org), a Bay Area non-profit whose mission is to inspire girls to lead through outdoor adventure, inner discovery and action. The unique programming of backpacking, hiking, rock climbing, kayaking and other challanging environments helps girls build their self-esteem and resilience that empower them to do anything they put their mind and heart towards, become real-world leaders as well as learning that they CAN make a difference in the world around them.
For this year’s Hike for Girls I’m fundraising to help subsidize the GirlVentures courses (two thirds of girls who participate in courses receive scholarships). Help me develop the next generation of comfortable, strong and confident women – we need them more than ever. I'm very grateful for all of your donations and if you'd also like to join in on the hike, please be sure to purchase your hike ticket(s) and register here after donating: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/hike-for-girls-2018-tickets-43676043221.
Bring the whole family - even the dog. There will be breakfast, the chance to meet the staff, hear the girls’ stories from past summer programs and get some fun exercise in as well (it’s an easy 3 miles).
