Trail Dames Summit 2011

Trail Dames, a "hiking club for women of a curvy nature," will be holding its first annual Hiking and Backpacking Conference for Women next month.

Summit 2011 will feature classes on all aspects of hiking and backpacking, lectures and slide shows featuring women that have hiked all over the world, panel discussions focusing on the challenges that women in the outdoors face today, as well as many other special features.

This is a great opportunity for women to not only learn, but to commune with others that share their love of the outdoors. Trail Dames hopes that you will leave inspired, fullfilled and ready to hit the trail.

The Summit will be held on June 24-26, 2011, at Eastern Mennonite University in Harrisonburg, Virginia. For more information, please click here.

I came across your blog while surfing the web and wanted to discuss possible synergies we may have.

I am the Co-Founder of the Peaks Foundation http://www.peaksfoundation.org/. We are a non-profit that organises global mountain challenges for women who seek adventure, a sense of personal achievement, and an opportunity to make a positive difference in the world. We support and empower women and girls in the communities where the challenges take place, through initiatives such as education, maternal healthcare and community-led conservation.

I thought it would be incredible if you might be able to feature us on your blog - or offer any other advice about groups of women we could reach out to. We are especially aiming to fill our Kilimanjaro trips for this year.

You can visit our website for further information - it would be fantastic to work together to empower women.
