Shifting Gears programs are free to our participants because we strongly believe that everyone should have access to the outdoors. 

We rely on fundraising events and donations to ensure that our programs happen.


Thank you for your support!

“[Shifting Gears] exceeded expectations! People, especially team leaders were inclusive to all levels and made everyone comfortable”
- 2018 Participant

"It [hiking program] was easy going (casual), and made me feel like I could ask for help if something happened or if I was concerned -- I'll keep an eye out for any other hikes in the future, maybe more "challenging" ones.”

“Definitely made me a little more confident”

Our inclusive programs are designed to eliminate the obstacles women face when pursuing their outdoor aspirations and to break down the barriers between them and their goals. Women can walk away feeling empowered and ready to achieve their recreational objectives by participating in our events.

Our programs cover many activities, from learning how to repair a flat tire, cycling a 50-mile route, finding accessible trails, locating a biking partner, setting goals, and simply rediscovering the joy of "play."

We strive to create a warm and inviting environment where everyone can come together, learn, and grow.

Your donation makes that happen, thank you.

Whether you can donate $1 or $500, every dollar counts.

Our goal is to raise $8,000 in 2023 to support our programs. You can help make that happen.

Thank you!
