My Story

Hey everybody, this summer I’ll be embarking on dual trans-US bicycle tour (Seattle to Bar Harbor, and Canada to Mexico) to raise money and awareness for Sky’s the Limit Fund and Open Sky Wilderness Therapy. Wilderness Therapy is a experiential, nature based therapy that combats a variety of mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, bi-polarity, substance abuse, self worth, and identity issues. Their Success comes from the wide array of tasks that build self worth, competency, positivity and by including the patient’s family members in the healing process. I’ve been fortunate in my life to take time off and hike for summers, I’ve seen myself grow and I know the healing power of the woods. I’ve also seen my friends go through wilderness therapy and its effect on their lives has been beyond incredible. However, Wilderness Therapy is very expensive and therefore not feasible for many people in the US. The Sky's the Limit Fund is a non-profit organization that is helping youth in crisis who desperately need this type of therapy but cannot afford it. Sky’s the Limit Fund provides grants to families in need so their children can attend Wilderness Therapy. They have 9 partner programs to which they provide funding, one of them is Open Sky Wilderness Therapy. My goal is to raise $10,000 for Sky’s the Limit Fund to help send more youth in need to Open Sky. Open Sky matches all of Sky’s the Limit Fund’s grants with a reduction in tuition, so essentially all of the money I raise on this site will be doubled. If you’re able to donate, please hit the 'Give Now' button and do what you can. If not that's totally fine, and I’d like to thank you for even showing interest in this, but please spread what I’m trying to do here, the more eyes on this the better my chance of success are and I can’t thank you enough for helping me with that. Thank you for your time, generosity and for helping me pay it forward!
Much love,
Greg Arpante.

Thank You
