The All Trails Challenge Rolls On…

News // September 01, 2016

Two and half weeks into the first FOW All Trails Challenge (ATC), and over 200 participants have joined the race to explore all 50 miles of trail in Wissahickon Valley Park. Funds raised by this event will support the continued preservation of the park.

Joining the ATC benefits the park (of course!), but participants benefit, too. Everyone that raises at least $50 receives an FOW membership, including all the benefits of membership:

  • The Wissahickon Valley Park Map
  • Discounts at the Valley Green Inn dining room and on FOW merchandise
  • The quarterly newsletter in your mailbox
  • Premier invitations to FOW events.

Additionally, the first 200 participants to reach the $50 fundraising level get the exclusive All Trails Challenge t-shirt. FOW will distribute tons of giveaways throughout the ATC as well–we’ve already given away 10 Philadelphia Outside vintage-style Wissahickon Valley Park fine art prints–and we have more goodies from some of our sponsors, including Victory Brewing, P.M. Munchies, Serendipity Shops, Danse4Ever Studios and the Wissahickon Brewing Co.  Follow @FOWissahickon on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram so you can be “in the know” on all ATC happenings and not miss a chance to win some of our fabulous prizes!

All ATC participants (including team participants) that raise over $100 are invited to the upcoming ATC Pep Rally on Thursday, September 15th.  Some ATC sponsors will be joining us, and there will be some raffles and gifts, complimentary snacks and drinks, and the opportunity to meet your fellow ATC Challengers.  FOW will notify all eligible participants the week prior to the event, but you have until 5 PM on September 14th to reach that fundraising milestone, so . . . get out there, hit the trails, and spread the word to your friends, family, and coworkers that the Wissahickon trails need their support!


If you need motivation… here is the fundraising leader board as of 8/29 and a list of the fabulous prizes you can win!
