Hi, my name is Sara and I am a member of an awesome organization called Girlventures, a local nonprofit serving Bay Area girls by providing outdoor adventure experiences for inner discovery. We explore self, community, culture & environment through outdoor adventure, creative arts, and group experience empowering girls to develop their strength and self esteem.
Last summer, I joined GirlVentures' On the Rise program backpacking near Yosemite. During the 11-day course, I learned how to be a good leader and how to prepare for hikes. We had to hike many miles with heavy backpacks. At first, I felt like giving up, but with the encouragement of my teammates, I kept going and made it to base camp. Then our group was able to summit 14,000 ft. Mount Langley by the end of the course. Reaching to the top of the mountain, I found a strength inside me that I didn't know was there. I became physically and mentally stronger, made great friends, and tried new things. This camping trip was amazing and made me appreciate nature more.
This spring we are hosting a "Hike for Girls" to raise scholarship funds to ensure that more girls have access to these life changing experiences. The hike will take place on Sunday, May 7th 2017 at Tilden Park in Berkeley, CA. We anticipate~100 people participating in our 3-mile walk. Come join us at this wonderful event, where there will be yummy snacks and plenty of fun.
Please help make a difference by registering for the hike or making a donation online today! Thank you! : )
