The relationship with our charitable partner, GOAT (Great Outdoor Adventure Trips), is one that is very dear to our hearts here at The Landmark Project. It is a joy not only to contribute, but to witness first-hand their mission to help at-risk youth reach their full potential by engaging them through nature and teaching them invaluable life skills. Each year, we see GOAT use the great outdoors as a platform to mentor and train over 1,000 kids!
What’s equally important is their passion and unique ability to build real, lasting relationships with the kids and teenagers in the program as they take on the roles of mentor, trainer, and friend in each of their lives. That means that somewhere along the way we get the privilege of sharing in those friendships as well! This year, we wanted to think of a fun and creative way to give the gift of outdoor adventure to all of our friends at GOAT.
With the help of our generous neighbors, Invert, we were able to raise money to purchase a fleet of 15 paddle boards to donate to GOAT for their summer trips. Our hope is that these boards will provide endless amounts fun, adventure, and new learning experiences on the lake for years to come. We’re excited to hear all of the stories that we hope these boards will help create, and even more excited to tag along for a trip or two this summer!
