Help Blue Sky Fund Get Inner-City Kids Outdoors

Our friends at the Blue Sky Fund are in the middle of a three-day fundraising blitz. If you’re not familiar with BSF, the above video will give you a taste of what they do and why it’s so vital. Here’s a little bit more about the Blue Skies Ahead campaign that’s currently underway:

With your help Blue Sky Fund will have the resources to offer two additional Outdoor Adventure Clubs this coming school year and will send a dedicated, deserving group of past Outdoor Leadership Institute participants on their 4th Annual Alumni Trip later this month to the beautiful mountains of Colorado!

Blue Sky’s Outdoor Adventure Clubs and Outdoor Leadership Institute are designed to build character traits and skills that have been proven to help children escape destructive cycles of poverty. We work primarily and strategically in Richmond’s East End, which includes the highest concentration of poverty in our region and some of Virginia’s lowest performing schools.

Please take a look at the info contained in the above links and consider contributing to BSF’s incredible mission.

About Andy Thompson

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
