Strap on your hiking boots — it’s time for Sierra Club’s City Hike-A-Thon. In addition to events in Los Angeles and Boston, hikers and nature lovers across the country will be able to participate in their hometowns using an app called AllTrails. With AllTrails, users can find fun and accessible trails near them, and Sierra Club will even send you a scavenger hunt to enhance your outdoor experience.
By registering online, your hike can raise money for local and national environmental initiatives, like retiring coal plants, transitioning away from fossil fuels, and increasing clean energy production. As an extra incentive, you can earn prizes by fundraising, such as T-Shirts, eco-friendly gift boxes, or a $500 gift card for a Sierra Club outing.
