Adventure Risk Challenge
Adventure Risk Challenge is the official non-profit partner of Truckee Fondo.
Adventure Risk Challenge (ARC) is a youth development nonprofit that integrates academic and outdoor programming for low-income and at-risk high school youth in the Central Valley and the Sierra Nevada, bolstering their skills in literacy, leadership, and life. ARC exposes these deserving youth to outdoor adventure experiences such as backpacking, biking, kayaking and rock climbing, and incorporates relevant academic instruction and leadership development into the outdoor activities. Following these transformational experiences ARC supports each individual participant through mentoring, college access support, and employment opportunities.
"Adventure Risk Challenge is extremely honored to be partnering with a mission-driven cycling event this spring. As a result of Bike Monkey's support and our involvement in the Truckee Fondo, ARC will be able to purchase much-needed outdoor gear for summer courses, offer more weekend adventure retreats during the coming academic year, and mentor additional at-risk youth into college. Dozens more youth will be transformed through ARC programs this year as a result of of this partnership, and it's difficult to find the words to express our gratitude! On behalf of all our youth participants, THANK YOU!"
