INSPIRING A COMMUNITY OF FEMALE-LED ADVENTURE
When we first started #SheAdventures, it was a quiet promise to bring National Women’s Month into the outdoor industry spotlight with photos, stories, and an opportunity to win an epic trip with some of our fiercest female athletes. Four years later, it’s grown into a community that puts women empowerment at the center of the outdoor dialogue... while continuing to stoke others to get outside.
#SheAdventures is our dedication to empowering a community of outdoor women; to inspire dreaming big, overcoming challenges, and living an adventurous life, whatever that means to you. Our #SheAdventures scholarship program helps to give women the education, technical skills, and confidence to achieve big things.
