Celebrate #OneMillionTRACKs with Kids in Parks!

Kids in Parks has reached an awesome milestone: one million adventures have been completed on our TRACK Trails! And to celebrate, we’ll be dedicating the first week of June to show how much we appreciate your support and seeing the adventures you take with Track and Kip! We’ll also be launching a limited-time T-shirt fundraiser through Bonfire, where all proceeds from the fundraiser will help fund prizes for the next one million Trail TRACKers!
