Big City Mountaineers Partners with MYSTERY RANCH and Outside Inc. to Further Mission Through Outside’s Inaugural Find Your Good Campaign
GOLDEN, Colo. (September 8, 2022) – Big City Mountaineers (BCM), a leading provider of outdoor and backcountry experiences for youth for more than 30 years, is pleased to announce that the organization has partnered with MYSTERY RANCH and Outside Interactive Inc. to launch an inaugural Find Your Good fundraising campaign, with a donation match campaign in September.
2022 marks the launch of Outside Interactive Inc’s Find Your Good campaign. The Find Your Good platform was created to connect people who love to spend time outside with like-minded nonprofits that are anchored in the outdoors. Find Your Good supports nonprofits in seven categories: hiking and camping, cycling, running, climbing, winter sports, healthy living, and sustainability.
“The Find Your Good initiative is an incredible tool to help connect people with nonprofits who have similar principles and values, rooted in the outdoors,” said David Taus, executive director, Big City Mountaineers. “Outside Interactive Inc’s dedication to supporting Big City Mountaineers and other organizations with similar values really catalyzes BCM’s goal of breaking down barriers to outdoor access for young people from disinvested communities.”
“I’m so thrilled to have Big City Mountaineers as a member of our first cohort of Find Your Good,” says Kristin Hostetter, head of sustainability and community partnerships at Outside Interactive Inc. “The work BCM does is so important and impactful, not only to the kids they serve but the outdoor community at large. We’re honored to support them and share their incredible work with our audience.”
To further bolster the 2022 Find Your Good campaign, BCM has also partnered with MYSTERY RANCH, makers of premium load-bearing equipment. MYSTERY RANCH has pledged to match every dollar donated to BCM on the Find Your Good Platform up to $5,000 from September 12-22.
“MYSTERY RANCH makes fantastic backpacks. I love their mission to minimize the burden on the wearer to enjoy the outdoors; it really is an apt metaphor for the work BCM does,” said Taus. “We are thrilled to have MYSTERY RANCH as a partner and look forward to working with them through the Find Your Good campaign.”
“The work that BCM has done over the years has been incredible,” said Michelle Fleming, product marketing manager, MYSTERY RANCH. “It strongly aligns with MYSTERY RANCH’s belief that the outdoors is a transformative place. Providing access to the outdoors for youth who lack equitable access to nature is so important. The support BCM receives from companies like Outside Interactive Inc. and MYSTERY RANCH is critical to their programming and we are so honored to be a part of Find your Good and this meaningful collaboration.”
