What we're about

We are a diverse and inclusive group of plant-powered, adventure-seeking, multi-racial, mixed-aged folks who work hard to live healthy and play even harder!.

We don't believe in being "too old" to try something new or "too young" to try something old school.

If you are looking to hang with a group that "steps outside of their comfort zone" to embrace a new sport, activity, challenge, food, culture...you found the right group.
#PantherNation is our name....#BERELENTLESS is our game

We organize "FitTrips" that have a vegan flavor. We are socially conscious about the food we eat to fuel ourselves and the locations/environment we visit.

We hike, cycle, mountain bike, kayak, EAT, paddle board, ski, horseback ride, fly kites, mini golf...
WHAT'S ON YOUR LIST? Let us know and we'll try and work it in!
