We approach our nonprofit work with many of the same philosophies we bring to our physical challenges. First, we establish an area of focus in which we can have a direct impact. Second, we map out a plan of how the Dawgpatch Bandits can get involved, and create actionable change. Third, and most importantly, we execute the plan established.
So often we find that people are very good at pointing out things that need improvement, yet they are often unwilling to take direct action to do something about it. Dawgpatch Bandits Inc. was founded on the fundamental belief that action is what drives change.
The physical challenges we take on create a direct link between the individual, and the natural geography that surrounds them. By highlighting the intrinsic beauty of an area, an individual’s relationship with their surroundings takes on new meaning. As individuals become more aware of how to interact with their own environment they increase their ability to take action that benefits themselves and their community.
