Gear & Cheer 2014
Thanks for the Cheer!
Women's Wilderness' annual Gear & Cheer was not only a fun night of great food, beverages, music and friendship, it was also a success. All those who came out - in person or in spirit - on April 17th are a part of our growing community of supporters who are helping us in strengthening the courage, confidence and leadership skills of girls and women through our wilderness based experiences.
Due to the amazing generosity and of our many donors and sponsors, we were able to raise over $30,000 in scholarship funds to support our Girls Wilderness Adventures!
In 2013, 40% of our program participants received scholarship aid and because of the support and generosity at Gear & Cheer, we will be able to continue offering life changing experiences for many girls who would otherwise not have the opportunity to get out into the wilderness.

Between auction items being bid on and delicious food and drink being sampled, Shari, Women's Wilderness Executive Director, eloquently spoke on how important outdoor experiences and time in nature is for everyone, and especially how our programs are important for girls. If you missed it, read it here and share with a young lady in your life!
Thanks for being a part of our community changing the world one girl at a time.
See you on the trail!
