Together as an industry, we must dedicate ourselves to raising a new generation of environmental stewards. Our children, our communities, our industry, and our planet are counting on us.

We can create healthier children, healthier communities and healthier businesses by getting kids outside and involved in healthy lifestyles grounded in outdoor recreation.

Change is within each one of us. It doesn't take money; it just takes commitment. As a member of the outdoor community, you can take immediate action to overcome the crisis facing society and our industry. It's simple: join
The Outdoor Foundation and say “I Will.”

Sign the pledge and promise to play. Promise to play and become part of the solution.

Your signature is your promise to take at least two kids outside to experience any outdoor recreation activity over the course of the next year. By signing your name, you are saying:

I will help improve the mental and physical health of children in our country.

I will campaign to build future environmental ambassadors.

I will fight to SAVE outdoor recreation in the United States.
