Our Allies

Outdoor Mindset  unites and empowers people affected by neurological challenges through a common passion for the outdoors. They do this through their Community, Regional Meetups and Adventure Scholarship. In 2010, thirteen individuals came together inspired by a mutual friend’s determination to make something great come from a recent diagnosis of a brain tumor. Everyone shared a link to a neurological challenge (brain tumors, aneurysms, epilepsy, etc.). Their experiences ranged from personal diagnosis to supporting diagnosed family members and friends. The group also shared a passion for the outdoors, an unyielding enthusiasm for life, and a drive to overcome the hardship of a neurological challenge while focusing on quality of life. These commonalities inspired the idea of Outdoor Mindset (OM). Now, the ongoing connections and great experiences fostered by OM continue the story.
