This would be an amazing win and many upgrades to my current kit. While winning new will be great, even better is handing down gear to begin someone else’s outdoor journey. Thanks for this opportunity.

This would truly be amazing! We are organizing our first “Nature Heals” for our non profit, It Takes Guts, and are desperate for gear for 20 beginner backpackers who’ve never slept in the wilderness. We are a non profit that supports families of children with chronic illness and winning this would be SO helpful for our September trip!

Long (3 year) story short, I had sworn off backpacking asking, "Why would anyone choose to be homeless* and choosing to lounge on the deck of the family cabin instead. But after a stroke in 2019, spending 3 months relearning to walk, a year in physical therapy, losing 83 pounds and losing the cabin to a wildfire I found myself looking for a place to enjoy the mountains and a physical challenge. I just completed my first backpacking trip in Yosemite. Cathedral Lakes down JMT, Half Dome, across the Panorama trail and down Pohono Trail. It was great but the 36 pound pack needed a diet too.

Like the guy hit by the drunk driver, I also have had a major life set back, cancer, and recovering still from a botched shoulder replacement surgery. Ultra light gear would be a true blessing so I can get back into the out of doors. Good luck everyone and thanks you to all the sponsors who make dreams come true.
