Come out for a seasonal hike for each of this year’s campaigns to connect with your fellow challenge participants while collecting points and some tips and tricks along the way, followed by some time to connect and share stories from the experience.

Two sessions will be offered:

  • Session 1: 10 to 11:30 a.m.
