1 May 2022 - 31 May 2022

We're sorry; registrations have closed for this adventure.

It started as Monday Mum Day for two mums who needed a day away from kids, away from work and away from the city to recharge and reconnect with themselves and each other in nature. This year we are inviting every mum to join us over an entire month to find time to find yourself in the wild places near you, share the stoke and raise money for a great cause. And of course…THERE WILL BE PRIZES!


  1. Register for May Mum Days on our website
  2. Get people to sponsor you (you can also sponsor yourself) at
  3. Get out and fill your proverbial bucket in Alberta’s spectacular wild places
  4. Share the stoke! Post photos and videos of your adventure(s) and tag @adventures4wild @radmumsyyc #Maymumdays
  5. Win sweet prizes from local businesses

Who: Mumdays are time to focus on YOU. So leave the kids and the partner at home. Call grandma. A friend. That kid down the block who just got their babysitting certificate during COVID and REALLY wants to make some money looking after your kid. You can choose to adventure alone or with a group of friends.

What: GET OUT THERE. We all might be mums but we are also all different, so do whatever you need to do to FILL. YOUR. BUCKET. It could look like a walk in a city park, a multi-day/multi-sport adventure, or anything in between. It could be once in the month, it could be every week. Make sure to share photos of your adventure on Instagram or Twitter and tag us @adventures4wild (don’t forget to give us a follow) @radmumsyyc and use the hashtag #Maymumday

When: Literally anytime in the month of May. May is the month we celebrate mums, so what a great time for a challenge celebrating how strong and badass all you ladies are! We know mums are busy so find time whenever you can. Our adventures started as Monday Mum Day but more often than not “Monday” would come on a Wednesday. You need to be flexible, so is this challenge is too.

Where: Somewhere WILD. It could be a pocket of nature in the city or it could be far in the backcountry. It is important for our mental, physical and spiritual health to spend time in nature. Find time to visit the places that make your soul full.

Why: In support of the Alberta Wilderness Association. The AWA has been working for more than half a century to protect Alberta’s wild places. Once you’ve registered, raise funds by getting people to sponsor you on our website at There will be prizes for participants who are top-fundraisers, as well as random draws for prizes from those who reach a minimum $200 sponsorship. The first 20 participants to raise $100 will receive an AWA Buff.
