Be a #HikingHero and take a hike for the environment!
The official kick off of The National Hike for the Environment is Earth Day, April 22nd.
Between now and June 11, get out and enjoy a spring hike, and help raise important funds to protect the planet.
Simply pick a date to "take a hike" - on a mountain, on a favoured walking trail, indoors with your walking group, or even around your neighbourhood - just make some time to hike, walk or stroll and help raise funds for Canada's only national grassroots organization fighting every day to protect our beautiful planet.
In this time of Trump Executive Orders intended to harm people and our planet, we need you now -- more than ever before!
1. Join the event as an "Individual" or as a "Team" (the blue text boxes just under the header image of the event page.) Personalize your fundraising page with your message, and any images and video you'd like to include. Be sure to create a message that will communicate to your friends and contacts why YOU have chosen to be a #HikingHero!
2. Connect with your contacts and communicate your passion for helping to protect the environment. Copy and paste your fundraising link (from your browser) and send your link to your contacts and encourage them to sponsor you on your hike!
Quick Tip: Before sharing your link, make sure you have "Saved" your page after you make any edits. Otherwise, your contacts will not be able to access your page while you are still in "Edit" mode!
You can hike solo, or get a few friends together and make it a group outing. Families, schools or community groups - this is an event where everyone can participate.
Get out there. Get others involved in your efforts. And most importantly, have fun!
Kick off Spring in style and raise funds for the environment!
Thank you for being a #HikingHero!
