Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we will hold our annual fund raiser virtually. By signing up for our first Trek for Tanglewood event, you will be supporting the preservation of over 300 acres of forever wild land and the education of 30,000 children on the wonders of the natural world.
Also, don’t forget to snap a picture while you are out and submit for a chance to win additional prizes in the following categories:
A donation of at least $30 means you can submit a photo in one category. Give an additional $5 for each extra category you wish to enter. Email your photos to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Tanglewood’s mission is to lead and support education and preservation efforts in our region to achieve a heightened awareness, understanding, enjoyment and caring for our natural environment.We can’t do this without your continued support. All funds raised will go towards the preservation of over 300 acres of land, care of our 40+ animal ambassadors and education of our youngest citizens about global environmental issues and how to care for nature.

how can my family and friends sponsor me? There are several options! They can donate online (scroll down after this FAQ) and put your name in the comments box so we know which person they are sponsoring! They can also write a check, donate in cash, or pay via credit card over the phone. Any sponsorship donations need to be received by 5pm October 1st to count towards the prizes. Donations after that deadline are still extremely welcome and appreciated :)
what are the prizes?
do I have to hike at Tanglewood? No, you can hike (or walk) anywhere: our trails, city sidewalks, anywhere.
can I bring my kids? Yes, absolutely! We want as many people as possible to get outside. There's no mandatory distance or difficulty of the hike - pick the adventure that's best for your family and have fun! There is no age limit to participate (although in order to submit a photo, the photographer must be at least 18).
can I bring my dog? Yes! Take your four-legged friend on any trail that allows dogs, and obey all leash and rabies tag laws where you are going.
where do I send my photo? Email your photos to: email@example.com
what are the deadlines again? Pre-registration (for those of you who want a t-shirt!) ends on August 20th. The hikeathon portion and photo submission portion is open September 17th-October 1st 2020. Donations and support from your friends and family must be received by 5pm on October 1st to be counted towards the prizes. Prizes are awarded on October 2nd at 2pm - you can watch the awards live on our facebook page!
