Join us for Outward Bound California's 2020 Rally for Resilience, a virtual fundraising event which brings Outward Bound California alumni, community members, and outdoor education enthusiasts together to raise critical funds for outdoor leadership programming.
OBCA is working to break down barriers and 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. For example, their new ropes challenge course in McLaren Park - located in one of the most under-resourced neighborhoods in San Francisco - is within walking distance of many schools, will be free of charge for almost all attending students, and double the number of students OBCA serves in California.
To engage in the spirit of Outward Bound California's mission, we'll be designing our own Personal Challenge Event to complete between October 16th to the 30th. The Personal Challenge Event, or PCE, has long been a part of Outward Bound courses. Although it usually takes the form of a run, paddle, swim or multi-element endeavor, virtual fundraisers like us are challenging themselves to do anything under the sky - from physical challenges, to self-care, arts & crafts, and acts of service!
This is unlike any other event OBCA has ever hosted! We can’t wait to watch this community rally together, find connection, restore and create something powerful. Everyone, especially today’s youth, needs the healing, basic human need of equitable access to the outdoors. That’s why we need your support! Any amount you can donate will help young people from lower-income communities get outside to challenge themselves and discover that there is more in them than they realize. Even in this virtual space, we can be #ResilientTogether. What will you rally for?
Sincerely, YLC Alumni
