Thank you for joining us at our first-ever At Home Evening Expedition Gala to celebrate Thompson Island Outward Bound’s lasting impact on the lives of young people.
We are humbled by the outstanding support we received from our community on Wednesday night. The virtual paddle raise, along with our live and silent auctions, helped raise over $205,000. Combined with the amazing generosity of the Durant Family and our many sponsors, we raised more than $600,000 in total.
We had so many wonderful speakers, from Gabby Thomas to Mayor Walsh to the students in the video below. Stay tuned for a link to the entire program in case you missed any part of it.
No period in recent history has brought into sharper focus the value of Outward Bound’s pillars: resilience, tenacity, leadership and, above all, compassion. And because of you, we are able to bring Outward Bound to students where they are – online. And when the day comes that we can bring young people back to the Island safely, we will be ready! Thank you again for your tremendous support.
