Two Writers to Join Forces

As long-time desert dwellers and desert lovers, we are doing what we can to support the people in the places we love. Melanie, owner of Sol Fitness Adventures and an outdoor fitness guide in the four corners area, raised $1,600 using her personal Venmo and PayPal accounts. The money supported a run of goods to residents living on the Hopi and Navajo Reservation. And it also went toward personal protective equipment (PPE) for medical providers. Additionally, Melanie purchased 100 face shields from dps skis and Skratch Labs donated hydration mixes.

Morgan created a GoFundMe to raise money for the San Juan Southern Paiute Tribe. In its first three days the fund raised over $5,000. All of the money will be used to purchase goods that will provide relief to the people of the tribe.

Melanie and Morgan are grateful for the donations. Join us Live on Instagram at either @running_bum or @solfitadventure
