Hike it Baby is thankful for all the Hike Hosts this year who volunteered their time to bring families together to enjoy the outdoors. This organization would not be possible without the amazing people who motivate others to join them on hikes submitted to our calendar each day. In honor of these generous Hike Hosts, we’re proud to give back during our 7 Days of Giving with some fantastic prizes donated from our sponsors. Lucky winners were drawn from the long list of hosts who submitted events to the Hike it Baby website from January to November of this year.

HIKE HOST WINNERS SHARE THEIR THOUGHTS ABOUT WHY THEY HOST HIKES FOR THEIR COMMUNITIES:
Nicole Andrews: It motivates me to get outdoors with my son, and I love the friends we’ve made through HiB.
Alex Wellner: I like to help other parents get their kids outside and develop a passion for the outdoors. We do host sometimes based on the unpredictable nature of toddler life and schedule, while being accessible for all hiking abilities. Eli was 4 months old when our local branch started. I was struggling with PPA/PPD and my new role as a stay-at-home mom. We started small (library walks) and that just blossomed into a love of the outdoors for my son and me. He wants to be outside more than inside and can find so much enjoyment in the beauty of nature and bugs and leaves. I don’t think that would have happened if not for HiB.
Hannah Dahl: We like to spend time with our hiking friends doing the types of hikes we love. I am so grateful for the community I have found through HiB.
