October 28th is Take Me Outside Day

You all know by now that I’m a huge advocate for spending time outdoors, and introducing our children to the power of nature. And for a long time, I’ve been a big supporter of Take Me Outside, an organization founded by my friend, Colin Harris, which is a non profit organization committed to educating and creating awareness with Canadians about our connection with nature and our time spent outside. On October 28, 2015, the organization is hosting Take Me Outside Day to raise awareness of the importance of unplugging and spending more time outside.

We’ll be out. Will you?

Read the cool story behind Take Me Outside Day (what, Colin ran the equivalent of 181 marathons?) and take part in the initiative!

  1. What an amazing story! Colin is truly an inspirational athlete! I am in the US but we plan to take part in TMO day as a family. I think I’ll notify my local running club, too, maybe we can get a kids event going 🙂
