SheJumps' Sweet 16

Updated: Oct 18, 2023

Join us on November 3, 2023 in Seattle for our biggest fundraiser and party to date. We are celebrating 16 years of providing transformative outdoor experiences for women and girls. As an attendee, you will be surrounded by the energy and impact SheJumps is known for as you enjoy amazing food, games, a live auction, Girafficorn sightings, and much more. We hope you come away with new friends, fond memories, and that sense of belonging and inclusivity that we are mission-driven to see incorporated into outdoor play.


So join us, and get ready to raise your paddle for amazing auction items that benefit a cause we hope you will rally around well into the future!



SheJumps was founded in 2007 to help women and girls experience the joy and transformative power of outdoor play. From our first program in Utah (teaching Boys & Girls club kids to ski) to fly fishing, avalanche scholarship programs, and even outdoor watercolor events, SheJumps has grown over the years to offer outdoor opportunities for more than 50,000 women and girls.


This November 3rd in Seattle, we are taking a moment to celebrate our achievements and our community! This milestone event is an opportunity renew our commitment to our mission and build the foundation for our future.


The Sweet 16 will feature great food, drinks, games, a live auction, and a very special guest—announcement coming soon! Don’t miss the best party of the year!


The dress code for this event is semi-formal (think more formal than what you would wear to the office and less formal than a black-tie event). We encourage our community to feel and look fabulous, whatever that means for you!

We have room blocks available near the venue! Click here to contact the Best Western in Pioneer Square ($149+ tax per night) You can email us at sweet16@shejumps.org if you have questions about the event or your registration. We look forward to seeing you on November 3!
