You Can Help Decide Who Gets Gnarly’s ‘Fuel for Life’ Grant

Vote to determine who snags the cash in Gnarly Nutrition’s grant sweepstakes for organizations that support endurance athletes.

This year, the “Fuel for Life” scholarship will fund a deserving running, cycling, or other endurance sport group with up to $15,000 — and you can help choose which organization gets the grant.

Gnarly Nutrition fronts the award money, which is divided into two categories: the $12,000 grand prize and the $3,000 “People’s Choice” award. It all depends on public voting.

Judges have determined the top 10 finalists, Gnarly said. Voting continues until midnight MDT on Thursday, Sept. 15.

So, who are you voting for? A range of inclusivity-focused outdoor groups. The Blind Stokers Club helps visually impaired people get on bikes in San Diego. Ventura, California’s Runners for Public Lands organizes trail runners to help conserve and protect recreational opportunities on the lands we all share. And New York’s Asian Trail Mix seeks to increase POC involvement in trail running, with a special focus on Asians and Pacific Islanders.
