We just wrapped up another great Hike it Baby 30 Challenge—the second one of 2017!  We’d like to thank our Hike it Baby Challenge Partners for the great prizes they provided for April’s HiB30. The winning participants were entered into the prize drawings simply by signing up to achieve 30 miles in 30 days OR spend 30 minutes outside 3 times per week with their families.

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!man with a child on his back in a carrier and a young girl stand by a rocky streambed

This is what our winners had to say about April’s HiB30 Challenge:

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE MEMORY FROM THE HIB30 CHALLENGE THIS APRIL?

Pamela Moryl: Checking out a new hike for some upcoming events.

Errign Siek: I loved how much time I got to spend outdoors with my son (18 months). He’s walking about a mile independently & so happy to be outdoors!

Lauren Smart: My son’s excitement to go outside and his laughter while out there!

DID YOU HAVE ANY CHALLENGES TO OVERCOME? IF SO, HOW DID YOU OVERCOME THEM?

Lauren Smart: Somehow I’d become a person who only really went outside if the weather was nice. This motivated me to get over that – and I’ve seen how much happier we all were after getting out, no matter what the conditions.

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?

Lauren Smart: Your kid(s) smiles and laughter will make it worth it!

Errign Siek: Mark it on your calendar like an appointment so you don’t cancel on yourself. The more you do it, the easier it becomes and soon it’s a habit!

Pamela Moryl: A wild child is a happy child. 🙂
