Share the Adventure

Here at Revant, adventure enriches our lives—makes us stronger, builds our spirits, and feeds our joy. That’s why we are stoked to announce a partnership with Outdoors for All—a foundation that exists to transform the lives of those with disabilities through outdoor recreation.

The Outdoors for All Foundation began in 1978 with fifteen children with disabilities learning to downhill ski at a resort in the northwest corner of Washington State. After a successful first season, the program was incorporated as a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization in 1979 and originally called the Ski for All Foundation.

In the 36 years that have followed, it has grown to include activities such as cycling, hiking, in-line skating, river rafting, canoeing & kayaking, day camps, water skiing, rock-climbing, and camping with more than 2,000 adults and children with disabilities taking part each year. Today, Outdoors for All is a national leader and one of the largest nonprofit organizations providing year round instruction in outdoor recreation for children and adults with disabilities.

With Outdoors for All, everyone can enjoy the amazing wonders of the Pacific Northwest. They reinforce what anyone with a disability is fully capable of doing—through adaptive techniques and equipment, they open the outdoors to everyone. They remove “impossible” from the vocabulary.

Each year, more than 700 volunteers dedicate more than 18,000 hours of support through activities, training, and disability awareness programs. Outdoors for All offers activities covering a broad range of skill levels, private sessions, adaptive equipment such as sit skis and hand cycles, as well as a day camp that strives to build each camper’s social development, self-confidence, and motor skills. In a survey conducted by Outdoors for All, 95% of the respondents said that they experienced an increase in their quality of life due to their participation in Outdoors for All.

In the coming months, we have committed to donating up to $45,000, volunteering our support, our enthusiasm, and our experience to spreading the mission that the outdoors is for everyone. That adventure is for everyone.
