Join IAPWA for the adventure of a lifetime and support animals in need

There’s nothing more exciting than throwing on your hiking boots and jetting off on a new adventure, especially when that adventure gives you the opportunity to raise lifesaving funds for animals around the world. If you’re an adrenaline junkie or love to experience new corners of the globe, IAPWA’s challenges provide the perfect opportunity for you to let off some steam, enjoy new experiences with like-minded people, and of course help those animals who have nobody else to rely on but IAPWA and supporters like you.
