2023 Badger Sponsorship Winners

It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for… it’s time to announce the 2023 Badger Sponsorship winners! Over fourteen days, hundreds of hikers and adventurers entered the Badger Sponsorship with the hopes of snagging one of the highly desired prize packages. Besides being an incredible giveaway, the Badger Sponsorship is also a fundraiser for the Partnership for the National Trails System (PNTS). Through donating $1/entry into the giveaway, we were able to collectively raise $26,308.57 for the PNTS. Yeah, it’s pretty incredible!

Together, we raised $26,308.57 for the PNTS!

We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who entered the Badger Sponsorship. Your dollars will directly benefit the PNTS as they continue to protect and preserve 30 national scenic and historic trails within the National Trails System. Even if you didn’t win one of the prize packages (don’t worry, there’s always next year!), you can feel satisfied knowing that you participated and contributed to a deserving cause.
