Our Summer Giveaway has come to a close but there will be many more opportunities to get involved! Stay tuned by following us on Instagram.

In 2020, we launched our Outdoors Together Initiative to create inclusive access to the outdoors for our local communities. Now, we're launching the As Colorful As Nature Giveaway in partnership with Outdoor Afro and Brown Girl Surf! It's focused on providing equity to people of color, promoting the normalization of black and brown bodies outdoors, and providing a platform for any person of color to share their story and inspire others.


1. Post a photo on Instagram of you outdoors between May 17 & June 14, 2021

2. Share the story of your experience in the outdoors & what nature means to you

3. Include @SportsBasement and #AsColorfulAsNature in the caption

That's it! We'll repost every submission we can onto our IG Stories, and we’ll share your stories on our website and in our emails, so everyone that pays attention to us will pay attention to you. The giveaway will close at 11:59 pm PST on June 14.

We know we can't outfit everyone, but we want to make sure there's a chance to be rewarded for the effort of sharing your story. Keep in mind that there is no right answer or limit to what you can or can’t share. We want to promote equity and diversity by giving you our platform to use to inspire others, spread awareness about organizations and communities that you feel deserve attention, and showcase that nature belongs to everyone. We reserve the right to not repost submissions that do not support the goal of diversifying the outdoors, though by law all submissions are accepted as entries to win the Giveaway.
