Fundraiser Hike for All Out Adventures
July 20 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
A Community Treasure Needs Our Help
Outdoor recreation for people of all abilities has been possible in our community because of All Out Adventures of Northampton. Since their founding in 2001, All Out Adventures have paddled, hiked, skied, skated, and camped with thousands of people of different ages, experience levels, and abilities, with the mission to promote health, community and independence for people with disabilities and their family and friends through outdoor recreation. As they break down the barriers to participation in outdoor recreation, All Out Adventures strive to ensure that cost also is not a barrier, and programs are available at no cost or for a very nominal fee to participants. As they fulfill this mission, however, they face a financial crisis and need community support now more than ever.
Our local land trusts are responding. With a history of being dedicated to increasing our community’s participation in outdoor activities, Hilltown Land Trust, Kestrel Land Trust, and Franklin Land Trust are organizing a hike to benefit All Out Adventures. Join us on the trails of Hilltown Land Trust’s Breckenridge Sanctuary near the Williamsburg/Goshen town line. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to All Out Adventures for their courageous, groundbreaking steps toward inclusion.
The woodland Breckenridge Trail is a moderate hike with roots underfoot and several steep hills. It takes less than an hour to complete. It is not a universally accessible trail. If you own walking poles, you may want to bring them. Also, bring water, bug repellent, and a snack.
Well-socialized dogs on leashes are welcome. Their people are expected to clean up after them.
Preregistration is appreciated but not required. Please contact Susan Schroder, Community Engagement Coordinator at Hilltown-Land-Trust: HLToutreach@thetrustees.org or call 413-628-4485, extension 4.
