1. Pick your objective

What sort of an adventure are you looking to have this year? What is the outdoor experience that you dream of taking on and that inspires you to do more with your time, your energy, and your presence? Your Summit for Someone objective will provide context for the entire challenge and ought to be motivating and exciting to you, as well as compelling for your network of friends and family who will support you along the way! 

2. Set a fundraising goal

The Summit for Someone program seeks to provide outdoor adventurers and enthusiasts with an opportunity to take on the challenges that inspire them, while simultaneously raising important awareness and funds for wilderness mentoring programs for under-resourced youth. You’ve chosen a physical challenge that will push you in new ways; how do you hope to incorporate the give-back element of your SFS experience? It can be helpful to think about choosing a fundraising goal like you chose an objective: by balancing the challenging with the attainable. 

3. Rally your support network

Once you’ve outlined your Summit for Someone adventure, it’s time to rally your base of support. Friends, family members, and other folks within your network can provide both the moral support that is invaluable when taking on a new challenge and the financial contributions to your fundraiser that allow BCM to provide similar transformative wilderness experiences for under-resourced youth.

4. Go adventure!

You’ve figured out the details. You’ve put in the hard work and time to train for your SFS challenge. You’ve helped to raise funds for a cause that you believe in. Now it’s time to get out there and live out one of your bucket list adventures!
