The Hike for Youth
This funding project was begun in 2004, and serves a coalition
of non-profit agencies in the Denver/Boulder area whose mission
is to educate youth in outdoor education, nature studies, personal
growth using outdoor skills and environmental stewardship.
The event takes place in Golden Gate Canyon State Park, where
hundreds of hikers gather, hike, raise funds through sponsorship
and support of the work of benefiting agencies.
TheFerrantiFoundation serves as the founder of this event and
its chief benefactor. Any coalition of outdoor education groups
are welcome to contact Philip Ferranti in order to receive a logistical
overview for starting your own event, and possible financial support.
