Why do we always seem fascinated by high places? The views? The accomplishment? The feeling of making your body work? We don't know what motivates everyone but we know we love the journey to the top!

The Grand Canyon is rather Grand. Even better when you are hanging out with awesome people and enjoying a sunset with friends.

@the_real_carsonpurvis brought many attributes to STRIVE, including a great work ethic and an entertaining storytelling affinity. But probably his most photogenic quality was his ability to fall asleep…anywhere. (Yes, even on top of Mount Humphreys and the bottom of the Grand Canyon, though the latter isn’t pictured). Just how do you do it, Carson?

After reaching the Grand Canyon last night and watching a gorgeous sunset from the rim, the group spent today hiking to the bottom of this natural wonder before tackling the tough uphill hike. Everyone did an awesome job of pushing through the pain, and amazing views were abundant!

Even though technology isn’t used often at STRIVE, we just couldn’t stay away from the Olympics. Also, here are a few photos from running and the food bank today!

The STRIVE group volunteered at a farm, animal shelter, and food shelter in the last couple days, helping mulch paths and pack food to be handed out. And we’re still finding time to run!

Highest peak in Arizona: climbed ✅

The group tackled a tough hike to the top of Mount Humphreys, topping out at over 12,000 feet!

The group had a great trail run in the morning, and spent a few hours volunteering at the Flagstaff Family Food Center! We helped the staff prepare and package over 100 meals, then handed them out. No better feeling than doing good with good people.

First Flagstaff Blog: Getting Our Feet Wet at Altitude

First blog is up! Thanks to Kai and Owen for a fantastic recap of our first days here on the ground.

https://strivetrips.org/blog/first-flagstaff-blog-getting-our-feet-wet-at-altitude/

First Flagstaff Blog: Getting Our Feet Wet at Altitude Sedona is a beautiful place. Surrounded by red rocks, there are ample opportunities for runs and hikes that result in incredible views. Be careful not to wander off the trails -- as intern Owen Lewis can attest, once you get lost, a lot of areas look "kinda like a trail," and can lead to learning

Some shots from the first couple days of STRIVE! Highlights include a long uphill hike, a couple runs at altitude, and some great views in general. Unseen in this post were two great trips to the grocery store!

Strive 4x400 relay handoff. It gets competitive out there but it all ends with smiles, gasps for air longer than usual, and some good ol' Peruvian bakery treats to make it all better.

It's almost time for things like this to be something we can all do again! Thanks to everyone who has worked so hard to get vaccines out to the public and for allowing us to take steps in the right direction. Let's hope that things keep moving in the same direction while we get ready for a summer we all need!

Taping is an essential step in painting. Teaching our participants how to paint the right way and taking pride in their work is a essential part of a Strive program. Good thing we have such awesome students who come on our program!

Throwback to that day Alyx did NOT establish her dominance over the monkey while volunteering at the animal sanctuary. This monkey was 100% going to be the boss. This could be you this summer, working with local organizations in the community, going on runs at high altitude in some of the most beautiful settings in the world AND doing it all with amazing people who share your interests. Why wouldn't you want to go on this trip?

Why STRIVE?

The Wright brothers modernized global travel with the invention of the airplane, but we have reinvented it with athletes in mind. STRIVE Trips was made for athletes by athletes. We are rooted in the belief that international travel, community service and athletics need not be mutually exclusive but rather complement each other. We offer athletes of all levels the opportunity to engage in life-changing experiences that others are having without sacrificing fitness or training. Explore one of the New Seven Wonders of the World in Peru or head out on Safari in Kenya, all while making friendships and connections that will last a lifetime.

Adventure is out there; let us show you the way!
