First Hike Project

Meet the Hiker Helping Refugees Connect with the Aussie Landscape

There’s something inherently grounding about hiking. Bonding through the sweat and the stories, and connecting with your fellow hikers and the land you’re traversing – that’s exactly how the First Hike Project was born.


Meet The NFP Helping Underprivileged Kids Build Community Through Running

Inclusivity in the outdoors is an ethos close to We Are Explorers’ heart, so we sat down with The North Face Explore Fund grant recipient, Trailblazers, to hear how they’re helping kids find belonging and enjoyment in movement.
