Join me for Outward Bound California's 2020 Rally for Resilience!

I’m pushing back on this WILD 2020 by Rallying For Resilience, to raise funds to benefit the students we serve. For my Personal Challenge Experience, I WILL WALK 500,000 STEPS IN THE MONTH OF OCTOBER, one step for every $1 that I want OBCA to raise by the end of the year.

I’ll also pick a day to walk the outer perimeter AND and all interior trails of San Francisco’s McLaren Park, the home of OBCA’s new ropes challenge course. Your support will enable equitable access to this awesome new facility, where we will provide outdoor leadership training to youth right in their neighborhoods. McLaren Park, adjacent to some of the most under-resourced neighborhoods in San Francisco, is an under-utilzed gem, and I’m psyched to be calling attention and resources to it!

OBCA is breaking down barriers to increase access, particularly for students from under-resourced communities and those disproportionately affected by systemic racism, school closures, and lack of access to safe outdoor spaces.

Your donation will help young people from economically vulnerable communities get outside, challenge themselves, and discover that there is more in them than they know. Even in this virtual space, we can be #ResilientTogether. What will YOU rally for? Want to join me?

With gratitude,

-- Matt
