Hop On Board For #BlueSkiesAhead!

April 17, 2019 8:30am

Our friends at the Blue Sky Fund have a big 36 hours ahead of them, and they need your help! Their annual Blue Skies Ahead campaign began at 8 a.m. this morning with a goal of $25,000 over the next 36 hours. (Unfamiliar with the Blue Sky Fund? It’s an East End-based non-profit that offers transformational experiences for urban youth through outdoor education.)

BSF needs your help to put the wheels of their bus in motion – literally! The Blue Sky Fund bus is currently parked at their office in Church Hill, gassed up and ready to roll on new outdoor adventures for over 3,300 students … but before they can head to their first destination, they have to reach their first fundraising mile marker of $5,000.

Here’s how you can help them spin out of this concrete block and head on down the road to enjoy green space and blue skies at Chimborazo Park!

Your support is the fuel BSF needs to keep our wheels going round and round en route to our final destination – Brown’s Island – at which an additional $15,000 will be unlocked thanks to the generosity of Blue Sky Family of Supporters! Come along for the #BlueSkiesAhead ride!

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?
