Win a $2500 Grant by Motivating Others to Get Outside!

Posted by on Jul 20, 2012 | 3 Comments

I love working with Merrell for a variety of reasons- the organization is filled with cool people, they produce great shoes, and they are serious about teaching people to run with better form. One reason really stands out- they actively work to get people outside.

To that end, they recently introduced a grant program that offers $2500 to ten individuals or organizations that have an innovative, impactful, and sustainable projects geared toward helping promote active, outdoor activities.

Our society likes to complain about people being inactive, kids playing video games instead of enjoying the outdoors, or our expanding waistlines. Yet few people actually do something to correct the problem. When Shelly and I decided to hit the road, a major motivator was to become more active personally and hopefully motivate others to do the same.

This program excites me because it focuses on creating leaders. I would highly encourage anyone and everyone to give this program serious though- how can YOU motivate people to get outside and create amazing adventures? Ten of you can win $2500 to make that happen.

Use your imagination.

Make a difference.

Become a leader.

You can learn more on The Pack Facebook page, and learn about the details of the program here.

Please share this post with your friends, coworkers, or anyone else you think has great ideas! A handful of dedicated, creative people can make a significant difference. ;-)

    That’s awesome. I just got “my girls” both a pair of Merrell shoes.

    I’ll submit Cube Dweller Fitness – get moving and break out of the box!

    Great idea, is it only available for projects in US? Over here in the UK there is some great outdoors to be had too!

    Just submitted my application to be an ALPHA.

    I’ll let others with more time to dedicate use the $2500.

    Have fun a TRT.
