What is the Doug Walker Challenge Course Campaign?
Doug Walker was a teacher at Teton Science Schools who dreamed of constructing a challenge course in Jackson Hole.  His dream was realized in 1995, two years after his death, and now, 17 years after its construction, the course needs to be rebuilt.  This campaign is to fund the reconstruction of the Doug Walker Challenge Course and ensure Doug’s dream remains a reality!
Where will the challenge course be located? 
The Doug Walker Challenge Course will be located at the Jackson Campus of Teton Science Schools and made available as a resource for use by partners within the Jackson Hole Community, fulfilling Doug’s original dream.
What are the benefits of this project?
The course will provide endless opportunities in team building as well as the development of physical and emotional fitness for hundreds of TSS participants, local students and partnering organizations.
How will the course be designed?
The course will be designed in partnership with Project Adventure; the pioneer and leader in design, construction and training surrounding adventure-based challenge courses.
Where does my money go?
All funds will be transferred directly to the Teton Science Schools, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization located in Jackson Hole, WY.  All funds will be used for the reconstruction of the Doug Walker Challenge Course.
How do I know my donation will make a difference?
All donors will receive a story and a photo about a life that has been changed through the work of the Teton Science Schools.

Help me raise money to rebuild the Doug Walker Challenge Course

Doug would love this – friends, family, people who never knew him but have somehow been touched by his life and vision coming together to rebuild the course.

I spent yesterday going over the information, meeting minutes, plans for building, pictures, newspaper articles and thank you from kids who used the original course. Those of us who participated in the work day in Jackson to help with the creation will always remember the clear blue sky with hawks circling overhead. We wrote notes which were put in a tube and placed at the top of one of the high elements.

We’ll repeat this on the work day for the new course.

It’s hard to believe how the project is growing – from fundraising in and out of See Your Impact to offers of music and work and stories. We are so grateful to all of you.

With love, Cindy and Michael

Ways you can help:
1. Make a donation to the campaign.
2. Join me, start a fundraiser and share this campaign with friends.

The more you share, the closer we come to reaching our goal and making the dream a reality!

Thank you!
