CYL’s Central Denver Chapter had a great time on May 1, 2022 leading an Adventure for Someone hike in partnership with Big City Mountaineers (BCM)! Throughout the year, this Chapter has been working to support BCM’s mission of providing outdoor experiences to students from disinvested communities, ending in an awesome hike at Mt. Falcon with students from five different schools. On the hike, students learned Leave No Trace principles, visited historic home ruins along the trail, and played lots of fun outdoor games. In addition to the hike, the students in the Central Denver surpassed their $500 fundraising goal, raising nearly $800 for BCM!
BCM is always looking for more people to get involved! If you would like to support their mission, you can learn more about running your own Adventure for Someone fundraising campaign at https://www.bigcitymountaineers.org/fundraise/adventure-for-someone. Through an AFS campaign, you can participate in any outdoor activity that inspires you while raising funds for students across Colorado to get into nature!
