Thank you for your support this summer as we weathered the initial impacts of Covid-19. Thanks to donor support, we’ve been able to continue operations and are staying hopeful as we make plans for 2021.
That said, we now know that surviving this pandemic will be a marathon, not a sprint. Just as generations of Westwind supporters have stewarded this incredible place for us, it’s now our turn to act as guardians so that future generations may know, love, and be changed by Westwind.
We invite you to take a leadership role this fall in our first-ever Westwind Moves! Virtual 5K Challenge. You can register yourself, and encourage friends and family to register as well. You can compete with friends for miles walked, funds raised, or supporters added.
The event has a flexible timeframe (November 25 – December 6) in which anytime you can complete and submit the results of your participation. Plan a post-thanksgiving run (or walk!), or hike a new trail on your day off.
The goal of the Westwind Moves! 5k Challenge is for you to get outdoors, enjoy nature, stay active, and have fun! Join entire the Westwind community in completing this challenge. Choose a fun place like a nearby hike or park to complete your challenge, encourage others to compete with you, and help raise funds for Westwind!
Show your pride along the way with your very own Westwind Moves! custom t-shirt that can be included in your registration, and is available in adult, womens and youth sizes!
In addition to the fun of completing the challenge, through this event you can help Westwind too. Help us meet our $10,000 goal by creating your own fundraiser or fundraising team. Compete with other fundraisers to win prizes and in doing so help Westwind stay open and able to meet our mission to conserve the Westwind site in perpetuity; foster life-changing outdoor experiences for all children, families and groups; and promote environmental stewardship as a basis for sustainable living.
Thank you for your support, now and into the future.
