    Become a Sponsor! A challenge hike for veterans, wheelchair users, and volunteer pushers!

    A major focus for this event is serving military Veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts, and their families. Other participants are adults and children living with illnesses, or past accident patients who are living with physical disabilities. Some groups include residents of the United Cerebral Palsy, Los Angeles, Hill Crest House, W. LA CalVet Home and participants from Long Beach VA. (Event photos and registration)

    For our whole existence we have been providing special outdoor programs that reach out to create an exceptional nature experience for people with physical disabilities. This event allows participants to benefit from volunteer support to traverse the mountain trails to the sea. With our current focus of reaching out to more veterans and their families the event is serving even more in need. The event management, promotion, insurance, and logistics, bus transportation, food, water, and naturalist program are all provided FREE of charge twice a year for both participants (wheelchair users) and volunteers.

    However, even with the partnership and committed in-kind support of Natural Path Network, the California State Parks, Kiwanis Clubs of Thousand Oaks, the Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority we run far short of financial support for the true cost of putting on this event.

    We need your help to cover the additional operational expenses this year and to reach out to new users who can really benefit from the many outcomes that this program provides, to those who need them the most. From the fresh air and physical movement health benefits, to nature encounters such as wildlife sightings and wildflowers, and, most importantly, to the camaraderie of this social activity and self-respect enhancing outcomes of meeting the hiking challenge!

    Thanks for your support and involvement in this exciting event. If we all pull together we can take this event to another level of service and success for all! Please contact me directly if you can help in any of these areas or have additional ideas or resources to contribute.

    May this year be a special one for us all as we each meet our own challenges and reach out to help others and, in doing so, we build new friendships while creating opportunities for our own growth, meaning and purpose in our lives.
