We are kicking off a week's worth of celebration for National Park Week, April 17-25, 2021, with our second annual virtual Grand Canyon Conservancy Trailblazer event.
The goal of this event is to raise $50,000 for important projects at Grand Canyon National Park like trail maintenance, digital educational content, wildlife protection, and the transformation of Desert View into an Inter-tribal Cultural Heritage Site.
Register for $25 and virtually join us by pledging to complete a walk, jog, hike, or bike ride by Sunday, April 25, in your favorite National Park—or just in your neighborhood or home—raising funds along the way for Grand Canyon National Park. You do not have to be at Grand Canyon to participate, all trailblazers are welcome to join no matter where you are. All registered participants will receive a commemorative Trailblazer t-shirt, courtesy of Wild Tribute. If you are trailblazing in a National Park on Saturday, April 17, all park entrance fees are waived.
The more money you raise, the more prizes you can earn:
- Be a Bright Angel Trailblazer and raise $100 – you receive a Trailblazer sticker
- Be a South Kaibab Trailblazer and raise $250 – you receive the sticker plus a Trailblazer patch
- Be a North Kaibab Trailblazer and raise $500 – you receive the sticker, patch, and a Grand Canyon Map Bana
- Be a Rim-to-Rim Trailblazer and raise $1,000 – you receive the sticker, patch, bana, and Trails Forever hat
