News Release: Partnering with Gear Forward

We are honored and excited to be partnering with Gear Forward.

Here is what Scott Gauvin from Hiking Forward and Founder of Gear Forward has to say about this awesome organization.

“The outdoors are our collective greatest treasure and gift that we offer the next generation. Gear Forward, simply is about providing the next generation of stewards, adventurers, Scoutmasters and Girl Scout Leaders the resources they need to get outdoors. No child should be denied access to all the outdoors has to offer because they don’t have the necessary equipment. Through the collection of gently used outdoor gear, Gear Forward will work with other worthwhile youth and outdoor focused organizations to get donated gear into the hands that need it. 

Without this support, availability and access to the outdoors or the proper gear we may not have the love and admiration we all have for the outdoors we now enjoy. Gear Forward is about ensuring that the next generation of adventurers have the same privilege to enjoy our greatest treasure as well.”

This is a great opportunity for us at Hike By Faith. We have a passion for the outdoors and want to give back so the next generation can enjoy the same benefits we have each time we hit the trail.

This past Friday we took part in the weekly Hiker Chat hosted by Teton Sports. After an exciting and very interactive chat Teton Sports and Gear Forward popped the BIG news they had been alluding to all week. Teton Sports asked this question and we said “YES, what do we need to do?”


And after a phone call from Scott Gauvin Friday night a partnership was formed.

Do you know of an organization or group that is in need of outdoor gear for youth? If so, we’d like to hear their story and get gear into their hands. Hike By Faith is looking forward to giving back.

    Such a great idea! Get more kids outside, instead of being inside playing video games

      I couldn’t agree more and I am truly blessed to have the opportunity to be able to be involved.

      We agree. It’s about giving back and educating the next generation on the benefits on the outdoors as you and I know well.
