My daughter went on a wilderness excursion a couple of years ago hosted by a local ministry that provides these trips as a means to challenge youth beyond their comfort zones and expose them to more of their potential. It was a life changing experience for her as well as most of the others in the group.
She now supports this ministry and in this effort she participates in a yearly fundraiser called, ‘Blast.’ It is a walkathon where the participants raise money via pledges by the mile or lump sum donations of whatever the donor would like to give.
