ADVENTURE COURSE & FAMILY FUN-RAISER
~ SAVE THE DATE ~
SAT, APRIL 11TH, 2020
An event like no other, The Gauntlet brings together a myriad of masterful challenges designed to stretch participants of all ages and stages to experience greater levels of connection, growth and FUN!
Come solo or bring the whole family – The Gauntlet is an opportunity to test your own limits through individual and group games while celebrating the magic of community. Join for a few hours or stay the day – all are welcome.
The main event of The Gauntlet is a challenge course, which is $50 per youth to enter. We expect the course to take about 2-3 hours to complete as a family, and we recommend families start the course either in the morning (9-10AM) or early afternoon (1-2PM). We will hold a raffle at lunchtime, around 12-1PM. In addition, we will have live music, food, and much more all day. All are welcome to join, even if you’re not completing the challenge course!
All proceeds from this event benefit Journeymen Institute, a 501c3 non-profit providing nature-based rites of passage and mentorship services to boys and young men in Puget Sound.

Why “The Gauntlet”?
The Gauntlet is the result of Journeymen’s vision for an authentic annual fundraising event that blows the whole “formal gala” thing out of the water. In case you haven’t noticed, neckties and tuxedos aren’t really our thing…
The Gauntlet represents the Hero’s Journey – it is both an individual adventure and a timeless story on the treacherous path to greatness. By combining the ancient technology of Rites of Passage with our modern style and some good ole’ fashioned community celebration, this event will leave you feeling engaged, connected and empowered.
Journeymen Institute is a 501c3 non-profit with the mission to build compassionate, inspired, and resilient young men through nature-based rites of passage, ongoing mentorship, and community engagement.
