CNN profiles Marilyn Price, the founder of Trips for Kids, a grantee of our Environment Program as part of our work Serving Bay Area Communties:

During a 1982 mountain biking trip in northern California, Price reached a point on the trail where she could see all of San Francisco. Looking out at the city, she thought of the children she met while volunteering at a soup kitchen there. And it hit her: She wanted to give them the same experience.

“There’s nothing like biking up a mountain and looking behind you to see all you’ve accomplished,” she said.

Price has since helped more than 25,000 at-risk children from the San Francisco Bay Area get off urban streets and into nature through her nonprofit, Trips for Kids.
