Everything we do fulfills this promise and is designed to create opportunities to Jump In, Jump Up, and Jump Out. This is your chance to get involved with the life you’ve always dreamed of—and share the one you’re living—with females in your local community and all over the world! We are here to create and share the new “cover girls;” the new inspiration of what it means to “jump” to reach your highest potential.
Women of all ages…
We create activities and events that directly help those who might never otherwise have the chance to experience the benefits of challenging oneself in the outdoors.
Women looking for a supportive community to try new things, get better at what they already do, as well as have opportunities to give back and share what they know and love…
Elite athletes who are positive female role models and are looking to give back through sharing their skills and stories. We are a voice for the up-and-coming athletes, and a place to share with the community. With the goal of offering young girls real role models through story and action, these athletes have the opportunity to be directly involved in encouraging other women to take a “jump.”
Regardless of if you’re JUMPING IN, JUMPING UP or JUMPING OUT, you have the potential to be directly involved in encouraging other women to take a “jump.”
