Many thanks to all of you who attended or supported Outward Bound's National Benefit Dinner on October 22nd. Your hard work, dedication and generosity truly helped make the evening a tremendous success - welcoming 400 attendees and raising over half a million dollars for Outward Bound!

Pictures from the evening are available here.

As our inspiring speakers Demeriace Tyler, Philadelphia Outward Bound alumna, Lindsey Melki, Outward Bound for Veterans participant, and Ann Curry, Journalist and Anchor-at-Large for NBC demonstrated, Outward Bound Changes Lives Through Challenge and Discovery.

The annual benefit is Outward Bound USA's largest event, raising critical funds to support Outward Bound across the country. It is not too late to make a donation. Please consider supporting our work with individuals of all ages, including teens like Demeriace and veterans like Lindsey. Your help is needed and your support is deeply appreciated.
