A retired high school teacher continues to spend his retirement with teens, this time out of the classroom; Denny McFadden started a nonprofit to give students a free outdoor experience.
"Like many outdoor enthusiasts, former teacher Denny McFadden spends his retirement hiking in the woods or kayaking down the Little Miami River. But unlike most retirees, McFadden spends his time with 75 teenagers.
"Every Saturday, McFadden takes a group of teens from urban high schools and middle schools out into nature to explore as part of Outdoor Adventure Clubs of Greater Cincinnati (OACGC), a nonprofit he started to give kids the opportunity to spend time in the great outdoors — at no cost to them. Activities rotate monthly and include hiking, biking, kayaking, indoor rock climbing, ice skating, skiing and snowboarding."--Anya Rao, WCPO Cincinnati
