Hike for Humanity-Get Kids Into Nature

$3,397 of $11.3k goal

Raised by 134 people in 48 months
Coastal Bliss  Cowichan Bay, BC

Island Oak High School Students are challenging the wild nature of the West Coast Trail to help children in Mumbai experience nature.



You are so close to nature, minutes away from real nature, like the West Coast Trail. But in Mumbai, India, there are children who have NEVER been out of the slums, never heard the wind in the trees or seen the stars out. Your sponsorship will help a child escape the urban slums for a few days in nature outside the city.

Island Oak and One! International together are working to share a greater experience of nature with children.
You can partner with us by sponsoring kilometres to:
· Help these children experience more nature
· Learn about what is beyond their everyday experience

You can join us in spirit and purpose on the West Coast Trail by making a generous donation for each kilometre we complete.

Help a child get out into nature;

SPONSOR A CHILD NOW
















The proceeds of fundraising go to One! International Poverty Relief. A minimum of 25% of the funds will go to One! International after covering the costs of the West Coast Trail plus any excess over the hiking expenses.

Local Cowichan Valley sponsors:
Coastal Bliss Adventures
Cowichan Tutoring

Island Oak High School and One! International Poverty Relief are Canadian registered charities.

We leave on Sunday for the hike on the West Coast Trail. The students in Grade 10 at Island Oak have worked amazingly hard to make this happen, to raise money for One! International, and to put on a Shakespeare play, all at the same time! Three of the students in Grade 10, along with a graduating student, put on a jazz and classical music concert on May 11, also part of this fundraising campaign. This is truly an incredible group of young people!
