Update: We’ve exceeded our $2,000 goal by $500! Thank you for your donations and support of this program.
The amazing students at Aspire Rosa Parks Academy in Stockton, CA are eager for some outdoor exploration! This fundraiser seeks to gain opportunities in nature for our students in the form of weekend hiking trips. We are blessed with a central location just a couple hours from the Sierras and the coast, though many of our kiddos haven’t had the opportunity to see these gorgeous places. It’s time to change that! I have started an Outdoor Club to get students and families those valuable experiences outside to discover and enjoy natural wonders.
When I was a kid, we would caravan in parents cars to go camping and hiking. Nowadays, school liability won’t have that so we’ve got to pay for a bus to get to and from our hiking spots. Which has a silver lining of opening the trips up to more students and family members!
Students have expressed interest in going to see snow and big mountains in Yosemite and experience the beach, ocean and tide pools. Help me make these dreams come to life.
