The Blenk Family Fund
Building Strong Communities
A strong community is built on inclusion, shared values and common goals. This gives young people an opportunity to grow and thrive, and the freedom to ask questions as they look upon today’s challenges with fresh eyes. Wilden is committed to supporting today’s youth as they prepare to shape the future of our world.

‘Wild One’ Wilden Trail Run
- The Wild One Run taking place annually in Wilden’s backcountry came to live in order to raise more awareness for youth mental health and funds for the Blenk Family Fund.

- Through the run we hope to promote an active lifestyle, get people together and outside, while ending the stigma around mental health.
