JOIN HIKE IT BABY FOR A VISIT A PARK-A-THON!
This July, get outside, and support others getting outside with a visit-a-park-athon, with Hike it Baby all month long and join our first ever 10 Park Challenge, in partnership with Athletic Brewing Co!
How does the challenge work? It’s simple - find 10 parks in your area and visit them this month. Neighborhood, county, state and national parks can all count towards your goal, and we encourage you to make it your own challenge. Do you usually visit neighborhood parks but have some extra time this summer? Mix in a few state parks! Lucky enough to live near a few national parks that you frequent? Check out what your town has to offer! Or you can even search for 10 NEW parks near you!
Want to participate in the 10 Park Challenge? Register for our two free event email newsletters to receive all of the new activity sheets and blogs, and be entered to win prizes! Be sure to keep an eye on our social media for special activities and giveaways as well. July is also our annual Together We Hike birthday celebration, so be on the lookout for a trail cleanup near you.
Want to help support Hike it Baby through the 10 Park Challenge? Sign up to be a fundraiser! We are asking you to raise just $10 per park, for a total of $100! If you ask 10 friends to donate $10 to support your 10 park quest, you will be there in no time!
If you fundraise at least $10 or donate $10, you will receive our special 10 Park Challenge Sticker!
Why the 10 Park Challenge?
The issue of accessible nature is near and dear to us, as we believe all families have the right to connect with nature, and our goal is to create opportunities and remove barriers so families can take their first (and many more!) steps outside. That’s why we’ve decided to pair this month’s challenge with a peer-to-peer fundraiser, raising money to help all families Bring it Outside by supporting Family Hiking Workshops, providing gear, and continuing to share resources and events such as the 10 Park Challenge to support and inspire families!
There are so many ways to participate!
