Outdoor Jam 2023 is happening the weekend of October 20-22 in Zion National Park! Contact Shauna if you have questions or think you might want to join!
The Outdoor Jam is the Ben Meyer Recovery Foundation's signature fundraising event.
Each October, Outdoor Jammers celebrate the life of Ben and spread the message of hope through recovery by getting outside, having fun, and doing something meaningful.
All funds raised support our mission of preventing high-risk substance abuse, provide support for addiction recovery, and reduce the social stigma of addiction and recovery, all in Ben's honor.
We could not have wished for a better outcome for our second annual Outdoor Jam. There were 16 Jams, again spanning the world, and we raised over $150,000. In addition to all the jams, we hosted a Narcan training session for festival organizers at the LEAF Festival in Asheville, teaching best practices for festival staff. Thank you to everyone who participated, whether physically or in spirit!
We were thrilled and humbled by the response both in terms of participation and generosity for our first annual Outdoor Jam. There were over 25 separate Jams across the world, and we raised and will match $229,715. Thank you so much to everyone who partcipated and contributed to making our first fundraiser a smashing success!
