One of the biggest groups we’ve ever had is coming to the Golden Ultra this year with Outward Bound Canada!
We are SO thrilled to be hosting over 20 participants from Outward Bound in Golden this fall. They will be coming from all over the country, and - for many of them - this will be one of their biggest challenges to date, mentally and physically.
So why the Golden Ultra?
This year is Outward Bound Canada’s 50th anniversary, and to honour that they’re undertaking a number of big fundraising initiatives aimed at keeping their life changing programs accessible for those who need them most. Runners with Outward Bound Canada’s group will be fundraising to do exactly that.
A bit more on Outward Bound Canada: they’re an incredible not for profit organization that partners with high schools, universities, community groups, government agencies, and more to assist youth and adults in challenging times of transition. Their philosophy is “there is more in you than you think” and they strive to cultivate resilience, leadership, connections and compassion through inspiring and challenging journeys of self-discovery largely based in the wilderness. Their core charitable groups include Veterans, Women, Indigenous People, and Vulnerable Youth.
Why not undertake a massive challenge to show your commitment to keeping the outdoors valued and accessible to everybody?
If you would like to get involved with OBC, they’re offering a fundraiser geared towards anyone who will be participating in this year’s Golden Ultra. Imagine your trip to Golden is free and you’re able to make a donation to Outward Bound Canada’s Women of courage program (for example). If this opportunity calls your spirit, then check out the link below for more information on how to get involved.
