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 their Transitions program backpacking in the western Sierras. During the course, I went rock-climbing, rappeling off a cliff, swimming in a lake and sleeping under the stars. I became physically and mentally stronger, made great friends, and tried new things. This camping trip was amazing and made me appreciate nature more. Recently, I joined Girlventure's Girls Advisory Board to learn how to become a better leader and speaker.
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 Saturday, May 7th 2016 at Tilden Park in Berkeley, CA. We anticipate~100 people participating in our 3-mile walk. Come join us at the 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! : )
