hike for hopeAs a four-year-old growing up in the U.S., your daily routine may have looked something like this:

  • wake up, eat breakfast, brush teeth, get dressed
  • play at home or at a friend’s
  • go to preschool or a lesson for a few hours
  • eat a healthy lunch
  • return home and continue to play
  • play with your parents once they are off of work
  • eat a healthy dinner
  • go to bed at a reasonably early hour

Between the ages of one and five, you likely don’t recall the number of times you felt horribly sick, or wondered whether or not you would have the opportunity to go to school.

Yet, the average Cambodian four-year-old’s daily routine may look a little different.

Each year, 1 in 8 Cambodian children will die before his or her 8th birthday – often from preventable causes such as improper nutrition, disease, and poor sanitation.

Additionally, due to a lack of resources or long distances, many children never receive a proper education.

Fortunately, this is not a situation without hope! Organizations such as Asian Hope are working to combat these issues by dealing with them at their roots. Because they believe that education is prevention, Asian Hope is focusing their work on child, adult, and community education programs. Asian Hope is working to empower the poorest people in Cambodia to live longer, stronger, healthier, and mores sustainable lives.

We at Outdoors Geek are super excited to announce that we are once again partnering with Asian Hope’s Hike For Hope Challenge!

For only $500, you can educated a Cambodian child for an entire year!

Hike For Hope is an event that brings together people from all across the U.S. to raise money and hike on behalf of those who suffer daily from a lack of education.

Outdoors Geek will be partnering with Asian Hope to provide support and gear to help make this a most successful fundraising event.

So please consider this – turn your summer reunion hiking trip into an event that will be a great time in the mountains for you and your friends, as well as a life-changing activity for children in Cambodia.

Every dollar raised will provide change!
