Congratulations to Alyssa Morgan on winning a BOB Revolution Pro stroller, thanks to our Hike it Baby Title Sponsor, BOB. Alyssa won this great prize by signing up to achieve 30 miles in 30 days OR spend 30 minutes outside 3 times per week with her family.
Hike it Baby hosts the HiB30 Challenge four times per year. Families from all over the globe come together to challenge themselves and encourage each other, forming a supportive and inspiring community. Over the course of April’s challenge, 1,301 families achieved a grand total of 24,578 miles and 1,430,815 minutes outside. That’s amazing!
This is what Alyssa had to say about April’s HiB30 Challenge:
YOU WON A BOB REVOLUTION PRO STROLLER FROM OUR TITLE PARTNER AT BOB. HOW ARE YOU GOING TO USE IT?
Apparently I need to take up jogging (again)! Friends have been telling me how amazing the BOB strollers are in all conditions, including sandy beaches. So I guess we’ll be taking this everywhere with us.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MEMORY FROM THE HIB30 CHALLENGE THIS APRIL?
Near the end of the month, one of our members hosted a hike two blocks from her house. The kids played on the playground, bird watched from the docks near the water, and walked half a mile on a paved trail. We were all invited back to the family’s house for hot chocolate and a picnic lunch afterwards. This woman pulled out all the stops: hot chocolate, snacks for the kids, salad and sandwiches for the adults. It’s a special feeling knowing you’re a part of a community where people open their homes and hearts for their friends. It’s also an added bonus when the kids had such a great time that they all napped for at least two hours afterwards.
DID YOU HAVE ANY CHALLENGES TO OVERCOME? IF SO, HOW DID YOU OVERCOME THEM?
It’s been a rough time of year for seasonal allergies. There were a few days this month where I was too sick to leave the house. I think sometimes it’s about knowing what’s best for your body and taking care of yourself and your family. Other than that, we’ve been very fortunate.
WHAT IS YOUR NUMBER ONE PIECE OF ADVICE YOU WOULD GIVE TO OTHER FAMILIES UNSURE ABOUT GETTING OUTSIDE FOR 30 MINUTES 3 TIMES PER WEEK OR ACHIEVING 30 MILES IN 30 DAYS?
The HIB30 challenges are amazing because they’re so customizable for each family. The main goal is to get outside and have fun! Some people love the added challenge of “no zero” days and get out every day for the challenge month. For other families, it means going for a walk together after dinner or walking to the local convenience store instead of driving; just finding that extra time to be outside. There’s no pressure, just an enthusiastic community here to support your goals and encourage you to get outside.
