Garmin Helps to Pass it On

11 May 2012 @ 1:58 PM  / Marine Blog / Outdoor Blog /

PIOGarmin is proud to help support Pass It On - Outdoor Mentors, a non-profit group that helps kids experience the thrill of the great outdoors. It's no secret that fewer kids are playing outside these days, and even less are being exposed to hiking, camping, geocaching, fishing, boating, and hunting.  That, in turn, helps contribute to childhood obesity, diabetes, and depression -- not to mention a lost connection with a child's natural environment.

Pass It On aims to change that.  By matching caring adults who have a passion for the outdoors with children who don't typically have access to the outdoors, the Pass It On program allows kids to learn about a wide variety of outdoor activities in a safe environment.

Tonight and tomorrow, the group will host its largest fundraiser of the year, Bust-A-Clay for Kids' Sake at Flint Oak Lodge in central Kansas.  You can read more about the event here, and if you feel so compelled, you can donate through the Garmin team's fundraising page.
