LEAVE NO TRACE
Leave No Trace is a non-profit organization located in Boulder, Colorado, whose focus is to promote and inspire responsible outdoor recreation through education, research, and partnerships. The Leave No Trace message is more than a campaign for clean campsites, it's a program dedicated to building awareness, appreciation; and, most of all, respect for our public recreation places. LNT is about enjoying the great outdoors while traveling and camping with care.
CHALLENGED ATHLETES FOUNDATION
The Challenged Athletes Foundation non-profit organization, is a world leader in helping people with physical challenges get involved, and stay involved, in sports. Headquartered in San Diego with regional chapters, CAF provides opportunities and support to people with physical disabilities so they can pursue active lifestyles through physical fitness and competitive athletics. More than 80¢ of every dollar raised by you will provide funding for adaptive sports equipment, training, competition expenses, programs and events that help challenged athletes get off the sidelines and into the game. It is through the hard work of our fundraisers that CAF is able to continue fulfilling its unique mission.
TEAM RED, WHITE & BLUE
Team RWB’s mission is to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity. Our chapters and communities deliver consistent, local opportunities for veterans and the community to connect through physical and social activity. And it is so much more than running. They host regular fitness activities, social gatherings, and participate in local races and events together. Veterans can also develop their leadership skills by serving as a volunteer leader in their local chapter. These programs are at the core of Team RWB’s mission. Be sure to ask about them at your first meeting.
