I ran into my friend Yuki this weekend while out on a hut trip in the San Juan Mountains. Yuki is an aspiring ski mountaineer and an incredible yoga teacher with a soul that radiates sweet goodness everywhere she goes. She will also be my next Yogis Gone Wild coming up this month. When Yuki is not on her mat or wandering the mountaintops, she works as an outdoor educator with an organization called, SheJumps that empowers women of all backgrounds to get outside.
This is SheJumps:
Our mission is to increase female participation in outdoor activities. We accomplish this by creating high-visibility “Get the Girls Out!” events, Outdoor Education, Youth Initiatives and grassroots recreational gatherings. The SheJumps community consists of females of all backgrounds and ages who help one another reach their highest potential through outdoor adventures and education.
It is important for us to give shout outs to organizations like SheJumps because it is something we truly believe in. Heck, it is one of the reasons we started RE:treat in the first place. We know it is challenging to embark on outdoor pursuits without the support desired and SheJumps is a female empowering house of inspiration.
Giving back is essential in what we do and just like Axel Project, we want spread the word about SheJumps. Check out their website and get involved- there are events and opportunities all over the country. No time? Donate!
Before you go, check out the Pretty Faces film teaser below-a portion of the proceeds go to support SheJump's future.
