One can make a difference. One can at a time.


 TYPE: Obstacle Course

LOCATION: Moody Gardens
One Hope Blvd, Galveston, TX 77554

Gather your fellow goddesses for an event that’s all about women, and women ONLY.

It’s an obstacle course, about 3 miles in distance, built just for women, no matter your age, shape, size or athletic ability. It’s a way to get back to nature, and reconnect with your inner goddess. And it’s non-competitive, so you can take your sweet time, have fun, and enjoy every moment with your bosom buddies!

Yes, it’s gritty too. There will be mud, sand, foam and water involved (we said “get back to nature”), and some other, more colorful goop as well – so we suggest you leave your Marchesa gown and Jimmy Choo’s at home. You’ll also be required to run, crawl, climb, slide, balance, hoist, swing, stretch, and make your body do things it may not usually do. That’s all part of the fun!
