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.

Pic in the lead!!!

Amazing generosity has put just under $200 shy of $30,000!!! Tremendous work! Although we are nearly $5,000 over our stated goal on the SYI campaign for the DWCC, we ultimately have to raise $150,000 for the entire course. Pic has challenged one of us to get to $10,000 on our individual pages….he is now in the lead. Help put one of us over the top for Doug! (I, of course, would not mind if I got there ahead of him!)


We are THRILLED! Thank you! Gracias! Merci! Danke! Arigato! We topped our goal today thanks to the generosity of the many! At last glance we had raised $25,680 for Doug’s dream. We will keep the SYI site alive for a while longer in case others want to contribute. Strong work friends. Get ready to celebrate in September!

Not $70 but still close.

In my enthusiasm to reach our goal I got ahead of myself. We are still close with only $970 left to go! I know we can do it before the weekend. Thanks to everyone!

Almost there!!

Only $70 left to reach our goal. We are so close!!! Thanks to everyone who has contributed and to everyone who still plans to do so. Once again, what an amazing group of friends. Much gratitude!

Happy Spring!

Wow. This community is amazing! In less than two weeks together we have raised over $12,000 for the Challenge Course. We are less than $3,000 away from the goal of $25,000 we had hoped to raise via the SeeYourImpact website due to astounding generosity from everyone. Wonderful job. Looking forward to celebrating in September!

Let's Rebuild Doug's Challenge Course

Thanks Bobbo for your great questions. It would be good to talk soon and thanks much to Lauren for our first donation! To all of Doug’s friends and family on FB and elsewhere, please take a look at the See Your Impact site to see how you can get involved. You can even become a fund raiser if you are so inclined. Would be wonderful to come together again and work towards rebuilding his vision by September 2013! Feel free to contact me if you have questions. More to come.
