giving back

Level Be Adventures LLC was born from the desire to “do more.” As athletes, we often focus on ourselves — what we need, how we feel, and how we can train to be better. We want to flip that logic. Instead of focusing on ourselves, we aim to turn activities into meaningful moments that leave positive ripples throughout communities.

This is where Gray Duck Grit comes in. When you register, you give back to something greater than yourself. We are pleased to announce all proceeds generated in 2022 from registration, sponsorships, or apparel will be donated to the Washburn Center for Children in the form of a one-time donation.

Washburn Center for Children is the state’s leading children’s mental health center, caring for a wide variety of children’s needs such as:

  • attention deficit disorders
  • trauma
  • behavioral problems
  • anxiety
  • learning difficulties
  • depression

One out of five Minnesota children will experience mental health challenges, yet only 20% get the help they need. Washburn ensures caregivers have a resource to help kids who are hurting on the inside.

Washburn Center believes a child’s mental health is as important as their physical health. Our compassionate child therapists help children develop the skills to be successful at home, in school and in the community.” – WCC

GDG reserves the right to add to our carefully selected group of non-profits. We’ll also be sure to announce the non-profit recipients prior to the start of registrations each year. Additionally, we will be transparent with how those dollars are spent.  Level Be Adventures and our Gray Duck Grit challenge is made up of 100% volunteers who all share the same goals of building a great event and a better community.
