The Hood Hikers got a chance to participate in Timberland's outdoor campaign which highlights how nature is for us all.  We had so much fun shooting this with Black Men Hike LABaked Agency, and Chris Digs

1st Annual Black History Month Hike Collabo

We partnered up with the magnificent guides of Trials, Trails and Triumphs (T3 Hikes) & Tristate Hikers to celebrate Black History Month on the trail. Gina from T3 Hikes was our guide, She did a great job navigating us through the snowy hike as we ventured Norvin Green State Forest.  We had such a blast that we decided to make it an annual celebration! Join us next year!

The North Face Explore Fund

 

We were extremely fortunate to be nominated and  selected to be apart of The North Face Explore Fund.  We received a generous grant, which will go toward equipping our participants with gear and providing transportation!  The North Face will also partner with us throughout the year to amplify and assist us in different ways!  Make sure you show us some love on their announcement and any future mentions of The Hood Hikers!
