Our fourth Adventure kicks off Friday, July 24, and ends on Friday, August 7! A huge thank you to our sponsors for helping us make this Adventure possible!
Our 7-part Adventure series is designed to inspire you- getting you out of the house to explore new paths, to recruit new 2-Day Walkers, and to raise even more money to fight breast cancer in Georgia!
For our fourth Adventure, we are challenging you to:
Increase your daily steps to 8,000 steps/ show us your best imitation of the 2-Day Moto Crew! While you’re out getting your steps in, snap a selfie with your fitness tracker when you hit 8,000 steps and send it into Whitney at firstname.lastname@example.org for a chance to be featured on our Instagram page! Before you head out one day, throw on your wildest 2-Day outfit (think “Moto Crew”) and film a clip of you guys rocking out in the streets, just like they do at out intersections during the 2-Day Walk! Send videos to Whitney for another chance to be 2-Day Insta-famous!
Fundraising Goal- Ask friends and family to sponsor you $2 for every mile you walk or ride a bike! For this challenge, tap into your inner Bike Crew member and go for a ride! Not a bike person? No problem! Just share your daily mileage for this 2-week period with your friends and family, and let’s see just how many mammograms, counseling sessions, lymphedema garments, etc. we can fund during this Adventure!
Contest: “Walk for One” for a Chance to Win a 2 Night Stay at the Whistle Stop Inn in NC:
Have we got an AMAZING contest for you! $1200 is the approximate amount it takes our grantees to take a patient all the way through the breast cancer diagnostic process. If you “Walk for One” in 2020 and raise $1200 or more, you will be entered into a raffle to win a 2 night stay at a beautiful bed & breakfast in North Carolina! 2-Day Moto Crew members and proud B&B owners Gladys and Larry Pilarski have generously offered to donate a 2 night stay at the Whistle Stop Inn (a $308 value) for one lucky winner! Contest runs now through the end of our 2020 Georgia 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer Experience (Sunday, October 4th), so you have plenty of time to fundraise. Good luck!!
Inspiration Locations: Vickery Creek Trail & Providence Canyon State Park: For this Adventure, we have two new great options to get you out of the house and moving! First up: Vickery Creek Trail at Roswell Mill! According to Atlantatrails.com, you can “Hike the Vickery Creek trail network at Roswell Mill to two historic mills, a covered bridge, and a spillway waterfall in Atlanta’s Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area.” This is a 4.7 mile roundtrip, moderate hike. Parking can be found at:
95 Mill Street
Roswell, GA, 30075
Looking for a bit more Adventure?! Check out Providence Canyon State Park! Known as “Georgia’s Little Grand Canyon,” the park features over 10 miles of hiking trails of all levels of difficulty. We recommend checking out the 2.5 mile Canyon Loop Trail. This easy-moderate level trail take about two hours, but the park recommends planning for for more time to explore. Parking is $5.
