Why Hike For Kids?

It’s easy to take for granted that we live in a beautiful city with some of the best urban hiking in the country - but not everyone in Richmond has this opportunity to access the wild nature of the James River. Pay it forward for those who can’t by joining us for
the only event in Richmond worth hiking for!

We’re hitting the trails for the
8th Annual Hike for Kids event on 
Saturday, October 26th to support Blue Sky Fund

- your participation directly impacts the number of Richmond City Public School students that we can connect with nature during the 2019-2020 school year!

Enjoy the challenge of our
3-mile (family-friendly!), 8-mile, or 14-mile
loops, each starting and ending at the Virginia War Memorial. Soak in unforgettable river views and the crisp autumn air while hiking for a good cause - celebrate the end of your hike with beer, food and fun festivities for the whole family!
