Joshua Tree Outdoor Outreach Fundraiser

By taking part in the 2009 Joshua Tree Experience, you will have the chance to enjoy a fully-catered, action-packed weekend in Joshua Tree National Park. Activities will include rock climbing, rappels, specialty clinics, hiking, camping, yoga, meeting like-minded individuals and learning more about Outdoor Outreach and the youth we serve.

All of this is a reward for those who participate in raising money to directly benefit the hundreds of at-risk and underprivileged youth that Outdoor Outreach serves annually. We strongly encourage participants to surpass the fundraising minimum of $250. If you are unable to participate in the Joshua Tree Experience, but would still like to help, please consider setting up a fundraising page to raise money for the youth we serve and to earn tiered incentive prizes. The Joshua Tree Experience is an opportunity to bring our community together and rally support for Outdoor Outreach programs. Please consider joining us this year - your support will allow us to have an impact on more at-risk youth in our community.

In order to attend the fundraiser, each participant will need to set up an fundraising site and raise a minimum of $250 dollars. We have set up tiered incentives to encourage high fundraising goals. Prizes will be given to each individual fundraiser based on the amount they raise. Prizes are cumulative; therefore, if you raise $2,500 you will receive all prizes through that tier.

Please check back frequently as we acquire more prizes.
