There’s a short story about a pair of thighs—these ones in particular—on our blog today. Spoiler alert: It starts as a war story. It ends as a love affair. ~swoon~
We partnered with @bewildher to bring our high-waisted, recycled plastic, foxy adventure leggings to life. And damn, they look good. They also directly fund FREE confidence-boosting camps for teenage girls in wild spaces. So these leggings are pretty much infused with the most love. Ever. And we’re pretty proud and happy about that.
We’re 6 months away from our first FREE Girl In The Wild camp for teenage girls in a wild and glorious space. And while we’re running around madly in a time warp of logistics and everything is beautifully chaotic, we just wanted to take a moment to say this: THANK YOU. Thank you to everyone who has purchased our leggings or one of our tees or muscle tanks (like Pargol here is wearing on a sweet mountaintop). We don’t have any paid employees. So 100% of the proceeds are making camp possible for the girls this year. And we’re beyond grateful. Thank you to everyone who has sent a note of encouragement. All the cheerleading and the “go get ‘ems” and the “I’m behind yous” are like rocket fuel propelling us forward. Thank you to everyone who has reached out to volunteer, donate gear, talk to their companies about us, share our story, and more. The love is spreading like wildfire and it honestly makes our hearts ablaze on the daily. Thank you to the companies who took a leap and decided to support our mission even though we were new and unknown and we didn’t have all of our ducks in a row but you believed in our vision to eradicate self-loathing as much as we did and now we’re stinkin’ doing it!! Thank you. This is the beginning. Together, we’re gonna help a whole lotta girls rise.
We are beyond excited to announce that the incredible women behind @runbcadventures are supporting Girl In The Wild by supplying their RUN BC adventure participants with our Adventure Tees. Whoa! So cool! 100% of the proceeds support our FREE camps for teenage girls in wild places. RUN BC was started by endurance athlete Jen Segger who is by far one of the strongest, grittiest competitors we’ve ever seen. She’s also a coach, a mother, and a goal crusher. Her magic is in guiding and inspiring athletes (and wanna be athletes) to achieve massive goals. If you want to explore some stinkin’ stunning places in British Columbia and abroad (hello, Dolomites in Italy!), RUN BC offers guided running adventures in remote and exceptionally incredible places that’ll change the course of your life. We know, because we had the pleasure of running with Jen and her crew in the Esplanade Range last year. And, Uhm, heart explosion!! THANK YOU, Jen and RUN BC Adventures for helping us help struggling teenage girls rise! Can’t wait to see the crew sporting GITW tees in the wild! ❤️ 🌲
