What’s the ExpeditionTrips Charity Challenge? On January 1st 2012, ExpeditionTrips challenged our 15-person team to make a commitment to personal health and wellness while also bringing a positive impact to the community. The challenge was to log 5,000 miles over the course of the year via activities like walking, running, swimming, biking, etc. The goal was reached before the end of the year and we were thrilled to be able to contribute to a terrific cause!
