North Face Partners With Trail Sisters On Childcare Grants To Remove Boundaries For Moms To Explore

By

For Stephanie Howe, Maribel Stelljes, Marie Keegan-Bergeron and Shaneyka Yazzie, nature was always an escape. But in motherhood, all four women found that it was more than that. The outdoors became a sanctuary; a place to reconnect with their passions, their heritage—and themselves.​ North Face is proud to partner with Trail Sisters on Childcare grants to remove boundaries for moms to explore.

 About the Grant

Launched in 2018, the Adventure Grant was created to boost opportunity and encouragement for women to pursue their wildest adventure dreams.  
We know the temptation of curiosity, the rush of adrenaline, and the feeling of satisfaction when fulfilling a dream. It is something everyone should experience.
Trail Sisters and The North Face want women to embrace their capabilities and confidently go explore. These adventures provide representation of what is possible, and help to motivate others.
Though we are only able to award six women with a $500 grant, Trail Sisters and The North Face hope all women will be inspired to take on their wildest adventure dreams.

Criteria & Details

Six selected awardees receive a $500 grant to help with costs associated with their adventure. In addition, they receive a Trail Sisters gear kit and a pair of The North Face VECTIV Trail Running Shoes.
To qualify, candidates must submit applications that will be reviewed (anonymously) by a panel of Trail Sisters & members from The North Face.
All women wanting to pursue their dream adventure are welcome to apply. Grants may be awarded for a first time trail run adventure, the seasoned hiker planning the next big challenge, or chasing down a fastest known time.
There are no required performance standards or previous experience, but awardees are required to write about their experience in an article for Trail Sisters and The North Face post-adventure.
Participants must be 18 yrs or older, and US residents (due to federal rules and regulations).
The deadline for application submissions is June 10th. Awardees will be announced at the end of June. 
Adventures must be completed before November 1st, 2022. 
Please note: These grants are not intended to help fund a trip to an organized race or event.
