Each year, Recreation Northwest chooses a local non-profit to be the beneficiary of the Olympia Traverse. Our selection criteria is that it is a local organization that has demonstrated a commitment to the community through the work they do and the programs they offer. We also select based on organizations who have been directly involved with our event and will continue to participate with us and take the opportunity to use this as an awareness and fundraising opportunity for themselves.
We will be giving a portion of the Olympia Traverse proceeds directly to their organization.
The ONE for 2013
We have selected Friends of Capitol Forest for this year. They have been involved in the Traverse since the beginning and we have a strong working relationship with their organization. Their dedication to recreation in and stewardship of Capitol Forest is admirable and we recognize them for their contributions. We hope you will too- please donate directly to their cause to further their efforts.
Make sure to check out their signature event: Capitol Forest Classic - August 10th & 11th.
