We hope you enjoy the 10 Park Challenge!

We work hard to keep our resources and events free for every family with the support from our generous community members like you.

Creating and organizing these are not free, and we hope you'll consider a donation to help us get even more families outside.  

The 10-Minute Walk initiative seeks to "create a world in which 100% of people in U.S. cities have safe access to a quality park or green space within a 10-minute walk of home by 2050." Currently, in the United States, more than 100 million people are lacking access to a park within a half miles of their home.

 

OutGrown feels strongly about being a voice to advocate for safe greenspaces for everyone, so we are asking our community to join the initiative by reaching out to their elected mayor to ask them to take the pledge!
