Champaign Outdoors Mountainfilm Grant

100% of Proceeds Benefit:

For the past 20 years, Champaign Outdoors has donated the proceeds from Mountainfilm on Tour to a wonderfully deserving non-profit.  This year, we let our community join us in choosing this local organization... and you chose CU Able!

The mission of CU Able is to bring families, resources and community together to celebrate and support kids with disabilities by providing, advocacy, education, and awareness about the disability community throughout Champaign County.

The Mountainfilm Grant money will go to funding programs that get kids and their families outside, either in the form of family camping trips to Timber Pointe Outdoor Center, an accessible camp just north of Bloomington, or for day trips to Illinois Nature Preserves and State Parks.
