CorpsTHAT is a Deaf-led non-profit organization that has an annual fundraiser called Sol Fest, and this year it is a hike-a-thon. We set a goal of $1000 dollars to support the mission of CorpsTHAT to connect the Deaf Community and the outdoors through education, recreation, and careers.
We want you to come hike with us and continue to raise a positive ASL presence in our local community. We also want to meet our fundraising goal because we really believe in the vision and mission of CorpsTHAT.
You might think, “Does CorpsTHAT benefit me way out here in Montana?!”
The answer is, YES!!!
They have great resources on their website, they offer incredible classes online, and the work they are doing is blazing a trail that will make it more possible for the Deaf community to be included in outdoor activities and employment.
Can you please share our fundraiser on Facebook and ask your friends to support you in the hike? If they can give just $2 per mile, that will be a $10 donation to a really great cause. Click HERE to go to our Facebook Fundraiser page.
