SheLift Carbondale Retreat
It’s hard to believe that SheLift is now in its third year and with four retreats, 20+ young women and four locations under our belt, I have to pinch myself that this once unimaginable dream has come to life.
As SheLift continues to grow, our mission has been to expand our reach and make sure that our programming is able to impact women of more abilities – making this past fall the first year to include a different group of differences!
To celebrate this fourth retreat, we wanted to bring our largest group of women yet, together for an all-out camping experience in Carbondale, Colorado. For a weekend under the stars, our ladies learned how to pitch a tent, filter water, stand up paddle board, hike, and more.
Each night we hosted intimate group-lead coaching workshops with Jen Hudak that challenged the women to reflect deeply on the labels and circumstances that have made them feel different, and how to overcome those obstacles.
Hear from some of the girls who attended the retreat, and be sure to watch the full video to see the life-changing experience we had.
On this #GivingTuesday, rather than asking for your approval or holiday dollars, I'm asking you to help these young women feel seen. Help their stories be heard, help young girls who might be growing up like them know that they aren't alone.
If you can give anything on this #givingtuesday, please consider giving this video a share. And if you can make a donation, those are welcome as well so we can continue to make differences represented in media, and provide community and opportunity for these deserving bad-ass babes.
Thank you to LifeStraw for making our video production possible and to The Guest House Colorado for being our host. Special thanks to all of our selfless volunteers and brand partners for your time, donations and love for SheLift. Thank you to Megan Ambrose and Natalie Colapietro for the beautiful images that will help us remember this retreat for a lifetime.
