Help me raise money to rebuild the Doug Walker Challenge Course
Doug loved helping people and especially kids to love and appreciate nature. He also firmly believed that community building and striving for your best were important things to teach. I remember when he decided he was going to expand his vocabulary and he learned three new words a day. He challenged the whole family to also learn these words and to use them correctly in a sentence. I clearly remember putting a kerf in a tree while taking a Circuitous route through the woods. This was one of many ways he thought to try and make himself the best that he could be. He also had a dream of building a challenge course and sharing it with kids in the Jackson community and beyond because he strongly believed that being outdoors and working together were so important in building strong communities and children’s self worth.
After Doug died many of his family and friends came together to help realize his dream of a community challenge course become a reality. It was recently dismantled by the town but the Teton Science School folks decided to pick up the gauntlet and rebuild the course. We are now asking family and friends to help us build a new course. We would appreciate any help you are able to give (financial donations, donations of time or labor, stories, artistic contributions).
Thanks so much for considering this wonderful endeavor.
