Episode 138: Purpose and Perspective in the Superstition Mountains
The Cairn Project
Join us in our She Explores Podcast Facebook Group!
The power of a two-night backpacking trip in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona is multiplied when it’s spent with women who are motivated by a common goal: to help introduce more girls to the outdoors. We backpack with The Cairn Project.
The premise of The Cairn Project is simple: they work with ambassadors to help them host adventure fundraisers. Then they pool the money and give it out in small grants to nonprofits that get girls and young women outside.
