My daughter, Hannah, was diagnosed with cancer at age 4. After three years of brutal chemo she beat it. This summer will be her 5th year anniversary of being in remission. Which is considered cured. To celebrate we are combining two things she loves, fire lookouts and canoeing. Our adventure will be a multi day trip paddling across Ross lake to Desolation Peak. We are excited at the opportunity to share our adventure with you in an effort to raise money for The Mountaineers Youth Programs. Our goal is to raise $1000 for our next generation of explorers. Hannah is especially excited and proud that her challenge might be able to help other kids live a fun life.
Our Parks | Your Adventure challenge
Designed to inspire our community to get outside and celebrate our wild places, the Our Parks Your Adventure Challenge is a fun way for Mountaineers to challenge themselves while doing good for our community. From urban parks to National Parks and everything in between, our community of adventurers are rallying together to raise $40,000 for Mountaineers youth programs.
Getting the next generation outside
The outdoors has the power to transform our minds and fuel our souls. At The Mountaineers, we've been getting poeple outside for 111-years, and we're still inspired by the smiling faces returning from the outdoors. We believe everyone should experience the magic of our wild places, and that's why we're committed to bringing outdoor experiences to today’s youth.
OPYA supports The Mountaineers youth programs where we introduce young people to the benefits of the outdoors: self-confidence and self-reliance, perseverance, an appreciation for the natural world and protecting it, and a healthy, meaningful life. In 2017 alone, we introduced 1,670 youth to the outdoors - 975 of whom were on scholarship and wouldn't otherwise have the opportunity to engage with the outdoors. Please donate to support this amazing cause, or consider joining Team OPYA to fundraise with your own challenge. You can learn more about the entire program on our FAQ page.
