THAT’S A WRAP!
(Updated 2/27/22) We’re thrilled to say that the Winter 2022 Challenge wrapped up with record participation numbers! We met our goal of 200 participants by Thursday, February 24th and Maine West offered an additional $750 in community rewards funding to our beneficiaries if we met a “stretch” goal of 500 participants. Community members answered the call with a record 842 people getting outside and active over February vacation! Thanks to everyone who participated, helped spread the word, or otherwise supported the Challenge.
We’ll be back with another Challenge this summer. In the meantime, if you have ideas about how to make the SNAC work better, you can always reach out. We’d be happy to hear from you!
GIVE BACK WHEN YOU GET OUTSIDE!
You’re invited to join the Winter 2022 Second Nature Adventure Challenge to help raise money for outdoor youth programming in the Maine West region.
THE COMMUNITY CHALLENGE
Because we know people sometimes need a little extra incentive to make time to get out and enjoy local trails and outdoor activities, the Maine West initiative is challenging people across the Oxford Hills, Bethel/Mahoosuc region, and the River Valley to earn cash rewards for local youth-serving organizations. We are challenging participants to get outside a total of 200 times. For example, if you sign up and tell us that you took your 3 kids sledding, that counts as 4 trips outside and gets us that much closer to our community goal.
THE COMMUNITY REWARD
Once we meet the goals, Maine West will contribute $3,000 ($1,000 each) to help three local programs pay for supplies, equipment, and transportation to help kids enjoy outdoor adventures. Beneficiaries of the Winter 2022 Second Nature Adventure Challenge include:
- Bethel Area: Bethel Recreation Department
- Oxford Hills: Oxford Hills Outing Club/Bill Koch League
- River Valley: Chisholm Ski Club
SIGN UP AND GET OUT THERE
We’ve made signing up and participating in the Challenge easier than ever! It’s as simple as filling out a quick form to let us know when you’ve gotten outside. Answer a couple of quick questions to give us the info we need to count your outdoor adventure towards the community goal.
