Join Us In Opting Outside

This year, we’re thrilled once again to join with REI, the outdoor equipment co-op to encourage you to opt outside on Black Friday. REI gives its employees a paid day off instead of opening for the crush of people looking for deals the day after Thanksgiving and encourages other organizations to do the same. They also started the #OptOutside hashtag as a way for people to share what they’re doing in nature. We love the idea of #OptOutside because it matches so wonderfully with our Core Values, specifically that we want children to “experience the awe of nature.” We hope that you’ll join with us in spending time outside on Friday, November 23rd. If you take pictures, you can share them on social media using the hashtag #OptOutside. We’d love it if you also tagged us (@goldarrowcamp) so that we can see what you’re doing outside. We’ll share our favorite GAC family #OptOutside pictures on our social media channels. If you’d like more information on the Opt Outside movement, visit REI’s Opt Outside website.

Turkey Trot

Turkey Trot

Turkey Trot is Coming! The GAC Runners will once again convene on Woodward Park in Fresno, California for their annual participation in the Turkey Trot. We invite all Central California GAC families (and those that may be in the area for Thanksgiving celebrations) to join us for the 5K run or 2 mile walk. The run and walk both benefit the Community Food Bank. If seeing your GAC family isn’t enough motivation to come out to the Turkey Trot, all registered participants get a free T-shirt and a personal pie. There’s also a costume contest, so let us know if you’re coming so that we can make sure you can join our Thanksgiving themed group costume! The run and walk begin at 8 AM on Thursday, November 22nd. We hope to see you there! Click here to register for the Fresno Turkey Trot. What are the GAC Runners? Click here to find out more about GAC Runners.
