Be a #HikingHero and take a hike for the environment!

From now until Nov.4th, get out and enjoy a fall hike, and help raise important funds to protect the planet.

Simply pick a date to "take a hike" - on a mountain, on a favoured walking trail, indoors with your walking group, or even around your neighbourhood - just make some time to hike, walk, wheel or stroll and help raise funds for Canada's only national grassroots organization fighting every day to protect our beautiful planet.

In this time of slashes to environmental protection that are harming people and our planet, the natural world needs you now -- more than ever before!

It's easy:

1. Join the event as and "Individual" or as a "Team" (the blue text boxes just under the header image of the event page.) Personalize your fundraising page with your message, and any images and video you'd like to include. Be sure to create a message that will communicate to your friends and contacts why YOU have chosen to be a #HikingHero!

2. Connect with your contacts and communicate your passion for helping to protect the environment. Copy and paste your fundraising link (from your browser) and send your link to your contacts and encourage them to sponsor you on your hike!

Quick Tip: If you are trying to copy your fundraising link from your browser, make sure you have "Saved" your page after you make any edits. Otherwise, your contacts will not be able to access your page while you are still in "Edit" mode!

Sharing features are also available on your fundraising page at the bottom of the main image, or you can also access sharing features by logging into your CanadaHelps account. Click on your “Fundraising page” and click the “Sharing” tab on the right.

You can hike solo, as part of a workplace team, or get a few friends together and make it a group outing. Families, businesses, schools or community groups - this is an event where everyone can participate.

Get out there. Get others involved in your efforts. And most importantly, have fun!

Celebrate nature and its beautiful fall colours and raise funds for the environment!
