Our region has an amazing variety of parks, trails, conservation lands, pools, and outdoor events. Regardless of your favorite way to get outside, there is a park for you! It is with this in mind that Spokane City Credit Union (SCCU) and the Spokane Parks Foundation came up with the Greater Spokane Parks Challenge. Now in its second year, the 2023 challenge has expanded and is packed with activities throughout Spokane County. Participants can track their adventures, access park information and trail maps, and learn about upcoming events—all in one convenient app.
“Our goal is to encourage people to explore and appreciate our parks and public lands,” said Gene Fitzpatrick of SCCU, “and maybe even find a new park or outdoor activity they did not know existed.” The challenge is free and open to all. With 100+ activities all over the region, you can explore at your own pace. Complete just 10 activities and you’ll receive a waterproof Greater Spokane Parks Challenge sticker to put on your favorite adventure gear. Complete 20, and you’ll be entered to win raffle prizes. Even better than the swag? It’s all for a good cause.
SCCU has long supported the Spokane Parks Foundation, a local non-profit that provides resources for vibrant parks and outdoor recreational programs in Spokane County. This year SCCU will make a donation to the Spokane Parks Foundation for each challenger. The more people who join, the bigger the donation will be! “We are thrilled to collaborate with SCCU again this year,” said Yvonne Trudeau, executive director of the Spokane Parks Foundation. This challenge is such a fun way for families, friends and visitors to explore our area and experience all the different ways that we can enjoy the outdoors.”
The Greater Spokane Parks Challenge is running from now until October 31, 2023. Download the app, grab a friend, and start exploring parks today!
