“We believe every child deserves the gift of the outdoors,” explains Tony Ceresoli, Sr.—Executive Director, Pathfinder Outdoor Education. “It’s about more than just the field trips; our programs are about bringing adventure, purpose and enrichment into the lives of youth.”
Through an Annual Support Campaign, Pathfinder is striving to raise $10,000 to help youth. The money raised will be used for school group and summer camp scholarships. Among other groups, Booker Middle School in Sarasota and Academy Prep in St. Petersburg will be recipients of these scholarships.
“Each year hundreds of youth are able to experience the life-changing outdoor adventure programs we offer,” says Kari Fletcher, Marketing & Fund Development Director at Pathfinder Outdoor Education, “but for each who is privileged to attend, there are countless more who cannot afford this opportunity. We want to see how many more lives we can impact this year.”
The Annual Support Campaign will conclude with a Tree Climb-A-Thon on May 5th. The press and community are invited to come out and learn more about Pathfinder’s programs, climb a tree, listen to live music and support Pathfinder’s efforts on behalf of youth.
