Hike for Kids goes VIRTUAL!

Home / Get Involved / What’s New / Hike for Kids goes VIRTUAL!

There are a lot of uncertainties on the path ahead. But at Blue Sky Fund - we are certain of this:

  • The outdoors are essential to our mental, physical and emotional health (now more than ever!)
  • Not everyone - especially communities of color - experience equitable access to outdoor spaces
  • The need for outdoor education and experiences will last long after our current crisis

We're on a mission to increase outdoor access for youth of color in Richmond, and we have a fun way that you can help ...

#TakeAHikeForKids this October!

We've made the tough but safe decision to pivot our annual Hike For Kids event to a virtual format, because nothing will stop us from hitting the trails together [in spirit!] during the month of October! So while we're bummed that we won't be reuniting together on the banks of the James River, we're excited that hikers will be able to join us from across the country on their trail of choice [hint hint - invite your friends] and we're introducing NEW challenges with cool prizes [remember those YETI coolers?] to make this an unforgettable hiking experience!
