Support our 10 Park Challenge Fundraiser!

Join me as I help support Hike it Baby's Bring it Outside Family Hiking Workshops through the 10 Park Challenge!

We are no longer accepting donations on this campaign, but there are other ways for you to support us today!

$520 towards $500

I am so grateful for my grandmother, who we affectionately called T.T. for her trail name Trekin Tillie, for instilling in me a love of nature from my earliest days. In my mission to do the same for my own three children, I hold her as inspiration in my heart. If she could hike the whole Appalachian Trail in her 60s, then I can definitely get out and hike with three little ones! But sometimes that's easier said than done!

While my grandmother has been a source of inspiration, the organization Hike It Baby has been an incredible pathway to helping me with the practicalities of getting outside with kids from infancy to toddlerhood and beyond. Everyone deserves support to meet the challenges of parenting and Hike It Baby provides a community for families who value getting their kids outside and experiencing the joys of being immersed in nature.

I wholeheartedly support Hike It Baby's efforts to help more families get outdoors, which is why our family is taking on their 10 Park Challenge this July! Our goal is to spend more time outside, visit at least 10 parks, and do our part to advocate for greenspaces in our area.

Our fundraising goal is to raise $50 per park, for a total of $500! Can you support our visit to one park by donating $50 today? All support is welcome, so feel free to donate any amount that works for you! Your donation will go toward supporting Hike it Baby's Bring it Outside Family Hiking Workshops, which help support families with young children with resources and gear to get outdoors together!
