We just wrapped up another great Hike it Baby 30 Challenge—the third one of 2017! We’d like to thank our Hike it Baby annual sponsors for the great prizes they provided for September’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 September’s challenge, 1,027 families achieved a grand total of 20,359 miles and 1,263,771 minutes outside. That’s amazing!
THANK YOU TO THESE ANNUAL SPONSORS FOR HELPING TO MOTIVATE FAMILIES TO GET OUTSIDE!
This is what our winners had to say about September’s HiB30 Challenge:
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE MEMORY FROM THE HIB30 CHALLENGE THIS SEPTEMBER?
Marci Garnes: All the outdoor time.
Hilary Sinclair: Hosting a weekend hike and meeting caregivers and school-age kids who can’t make it to weekday hikes.
KEEN Winner: Watching my babies explore more and take charge of the hiking.
Adventure Medical Kits Winner: Hiking in Iceland with my family!!
DID YOU HAVE ANY CHALLENGES TO OVERCOME? IF SO, HOW DID YOU OVERCOME THEM?
KEEN Winner: Silly enough, it’s worrying the kids are dressed appropriately for going out. Like, will they need rain clothes or what if I forget something? I’m still struggling with it but just dressed them and went for it.
Hilary Sinclair: I hosted a hike on a trail I had never been to, which made me really nervous. I decided to just go for it and the hikers that joined us were great about discovering the trails together.
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?
KEEN Winner: Take it one day at a time and/or find another person to do it with you.
Thank you to all who joined us for the HiB30 Challenge this September! Join us next time and be entered to win some great prizes, like the ones from our Title Partners, Deuter and BOB. The next HiB30 Challenge begins on November 1st, so mark your calendars!
