4th Annual

Get Outside Challenge

Join us for this year’s Get Outside Challenge. In the past three years, 320 participants spent over 4,000 hours outdoors and raised $225,000 – AMAZING! Individuals, companies, families, and chosen teams can choose whichever activities they want while spending time outdoors.

It’s easy to participate – just log your 8 hours outdoors, raise funds, and support youth in Toronto.

There will also be an online auction with a variety of experiences and items for you to bid on from May 7-11, you won’t want to miss out!

How does it work?

  • Register as an individual or with your team of up to six people. Check out the Outreach Toolkit for tips on how to get more people involved!
  • Pledge to spend at least 8 hours outside over the Get Outside Challenge week with your team by your side, or each of you doing your own activities.
  • Pledge to raise a certain amount of money – the sky is the limit! You can either pledge to raise funds dedicated to much-needed Trails items (sleeping bags, raincoats, nutritious meals, canoe etc) or general funds.
  • Fundraise to support your 8 hours of outside time.
  • Make the most of it! Hike, walk, play a sport, do a scavenger hunt with your family, go for a bike ride, get your garden ready for spring planting. The aim is to spend the time outside, just like our Trails youth do at our Trails Lakeside property.
  • Log your hours each day and check out the leaderboard for some friendly competition with other teams
  • Document your journey! Snap pictures, take videos and share them on your social channels. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook, tag @trailsyouth or use the #getoutsidefortrails and Trails will feature you throughout the weekend on our channels!

The GOC2024 Registration Kit gives you online access to the Bingo Card, Hour Tracker and Map of Trails and more!
