Raising money for Outdoor Afro by challenging myself and others to climb as many vertical feet (on feet or a bike) as they can for the rest of June. Personally, I am aiming to climb 70k feet in the month of June. Sponsor somone on a per foot basis or with a one time donation!
This past week, I have been reflecting on my white privilege and have become increasingly aware of the lack of diversity in the outdoor activities I know and love (skiing, biking, hiking, and kiting). I am hoping we can utilize our passion for the outdoors to help support programs that inspire black people to be inspired and feel safe and recreating outside.
Pick a # of feet you think is achievable through biking, hiking, running, or skiing, challenge your friends and share for Sponsors!
