EMBR8CE THE CH8SE
Ch8sing Waterfalls is a movement birthed from pain that has transformed into passion and adventure. We are black women forging diversity outdoors, one adventure at a time. We are black women hiking in search of waterfalls while creating a new narrative, designing our own healing. Ch8sing Waterfalls is a collective of brown faces in green spaces.
