The Leukemia Society held it's annual "Team In Training (TNT)" signup at Sonoma Outfitters this year. Team in Training is an annual hiking adventure to raise funds for lifesaving cancer research. The program caters to all levels of skill, whether you're a seasoned hiker or just enjoy a good walk there is a hiking program for your ability and level of fitness. Sonoma Outfitters owner Jay Knick gave a presentation to the folks who came to sign up on how to pick the right footwear, packs, and clothing and how to appropriately layer clothing to stay warm without carrying unneccessary bulk.
For more than 21 years, TNT has grown to become an unparalleled charity endurance training program. More than 420,000 participants, from first timers to seasoned athletes, have trained with TNT and achieved their best at marathons, half marathons, triathlons, 100-mile century bike rides and hiking adventures.

Clean-up a local creek!
Join Sonoma Outfitters for Santa Rosa Creek Clean-up Day, October 3rd, 2009 from 9:00 - noon as we work on the Prince Memorial Greenway where it passes through Historic Railroad Square. In recognition of giving back to their community, volunteers will enjoy gifts, prizes, shopping discounts, refreshments, and a chance to learn more about this precious resource. With all the cut-backs
A Santa Rosa Environmental Educator will be there from 9:00 - 10:00 to answer questions about creeks, riparian habitats, and the wide range of aquatic and terrestrial species living along Sonoma County's streams and rivers. We will be cleaning up trash, pulling weeds, clearing debris from the ramps and stairs, trimming branches and encouraging the natural plants by removing non-native species.
Tools, gloves, bags and everything else will be provided; we just need people who would like to be a part of this important event! Bring sunscreen and a friend! Help keep the trails handicap accessible and beautiful!
Not local? Take a bag along on your next hike and carry out the trash that you find. Or, contact a local agency that oversees and maintains creeks and ask how to help.top of page
