All Trails Challenge: Ready, Set…
Experience every corner of Wissahickon Valley Park and support it at the same time! Spend the fall participating in FOW’s All Trails Challenge, an exciting four-month long event that invites you to explore the Wissahickon by hiking, walking, running, horseback riding, or biking all 50 miles of its scenic trails. (All trail user designations apply.) Your friends, family, and coworkers can join you in your Wissahickon fundraising mission by sponsoring you.
The 2017 ATC kicks off on Thursday, 9/7, with a launch party at the Wissahickon Brewing Company (3705 W. School House Lane) from 6-7:30 pm. The first 50 people who register and pick up Challenge packets at this event will receive a free beer. Come meet fellow outdoor enthusiasts and maybe a new exercise buddy.
Don’t forget that FOW members get a jump on the competition and can start logging miles and fundraising more than two weeks early, beginning 8/21/17! Keep an eye on your email for instructions on how to sign up. FOW members already participating will be able to pick up their ATC swag bag at the Launch Party on 9/7 and will also get a complimentary Wissahickon brew!
Along the way, there’ll be mileage and fundraising incentives, lots of give-aways, and scheduled hikes and walks with great prizes, including exclusive vacations for the top mileage and fundraising participants. Last year, more than 270 people participated in FOW’s inaugural ATC, altogether completing over 5,000 miles, and raising $25,000 for the park.
