Outdoor Outreach Fundraising Gala Marks 20 Years

OUTDOOR OUTREACH CELEBRATES 20 YEARS AT ANNUAL FUNDRAISING EVENT, LEAD THE WAY

Outdoor Outreach was founded in 1999 by Chris Rutgers. You can hear our founding story here.

This year, Outdoor Outreach celebrates 20 Years of Adventure. That means 20 year of leadership, making a difference, building resilience, and challenging the youth that we serve. We’ve spent 20 years connecting youth to the transformative power of the outdoors. 

Each year, we provide more than 450 outdoor recreation programs, as well as nature-based job training and early work experiences for young adults. Through those programs, we help 1,700 youth every year realize who they can be and what they can do.



Our annual Lead the Way fundraising gala will celebrate this significant milestone in a night celebrating young people in our community and  transforming lives through the power of the outdoors.

Want to help youth get outside? Sign up to volunteer, make a donation, or join us at an event. Visit outdooroutreach.org



We are so grateful to our sponsors who make our work and events like Lead the Way possible!
