ABOUT SOLFEST'S HIKE-A-THON
We typically have our Sol Fest at different locations, and unfortunately, with the pandemic going on, we had to get creative and figure out how to continue with Sol Fest. We’re thrilled to announce that we will be doing Sol Fest’s Hike-a-Thon.
Hike-a-Thon allows you to support the trails you love while you hike. It is also a great way to get your body moving while experiencing winter solstice as daylight becomes shorter and shorter throughout the winter. On top of the limited daylight and the pandemic, we thought this would be an excellent motivator for people to find ways to get outside! Starting December 21st, hikers register for Hike-a-Thon and begin collecting donations on Facebook or on their own. Come January, participants spend the month hiking and sharing their outdoor stories to promote the power of trails and raise funds for CorpsTHAT!
Sol Fest represents a celebration of the sun and the astronomical phenomenon known as the winter solstice. The winter solstice marks the shortest period of daylight and the longest night of the year. And cultures worldwide celebrate it as the start of the days getting longer once again. Sol Fest is an excellent time to connect with friends, family and celebrate all the fun memories we have made together, exploring our natural world throughout the year. As well as a celebration of looking forward to making more memories in the year ahead. As 2020 ends, we need Sol Fest more than ever to start with 2021 in a positive light.
WHERE DOES YOUR MONEY GO?
The funds raised from Sol Fest go towards funding the first ever Deaf run conservation corps crew, creating more outdoor programing in ASL by and for Deaf individuals and supporting job opportunities in the outdoor field for the Deaf community. CorpsTHAT is entirely volunteer run, that means your entire donation goes directly back to the outdoor Deaf community.
