Congratulations to Lynette Oberly & Katie O’Donnell-Vicente on each winning a carrier of her choice, thanks to our Hike it Baby Title Sponsor, Onya. Lynette & Katie won this great prize 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 January’s challenge, 1,785 families achieved a grand total of 19,238 miles and 819,918 minutes outside. That’s amazing!

This is what Lynette & Katie had to say about January’s HiB30 Challenge:


You won a carrier of your choice from our Title Partner at Onya. How are you going to use it?

Lynette Oberly: On all our weekly HiB outings!

What is your favorite memory from the HiB30 Challenge this January?

Lynette Oberly: Lots of snowy walks in the woods!

Katie: Spending more time outside with my children.

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?

Lynette Oberly: The challenge is a great motivator to get out even when the weather is less than perfect. And we always feel better for getting outside a little.

Katie: Don’t get too caught up on the challenge, just do your best to spend as much time outside as a family, memories count more than miles.
