We just wrapped up another great Hike it Baby 30 Challengethe final one of 2018! We’d like to thank our Hike it Baby Gold Sponsors for the great prizes they provided for November’s Hike it Baby 30 (HiB 30) Challenge. 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 Novembers’s Challenge, 455 families achieved a grand total of 6,468 miles and 343,000 minutes outside. That’s amazing!

THANK YOU TO THESE GOLD SPONSORS FOR HELPING MOTIVATE FAMILIES TO GET OUTSIDE!

This is what our winner, Lynsey Heishman (Deuter), had to say about November’s HiB30 Challenge:

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

Lynsey: Our gnome hike!

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

Lynsey:  Yes! A 6-month-old newbie, working a hectic schedule, Washington weather, less daylight and holidays! We made realistic goals and enjoyed our time instead of stressing about trying to keep up with others.

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?

Lynsey: Keep a go-bag in the car and take advantage of the unexpected opportunities to enjoy nature.


Thank you to all who joined us for the HiB30 Challenge this November! Join us next time and be entered to win some great prizes.
