I wrote about the Do What You Love Sweepstakes from Cheerios for Gadling over the weekend, but wanted to mention it here as well, specifically because on of the dream trips that they are giving away could be of particular interest to the outdoor crowd.
The contest is a simple one. All you have to do to enter is head over to the official site and select one of ten trips that are up for grabs. From there, you’ll fill out a short form with your personal contact information, and make a pledge to “love your heart.” (Cheerios is purportedly a heart friendly cereal.) That’s really all there is to it, and although you can only enter once per day, you can come back on subsequent days in an effort to stuff the ballot box.
Some of the vacations that they are giving away include a trip to Florida for a NASCAR event, a five day escape to Rock-n-Roll Fantasy Camp, and the chance to go to Hollywood to attend a movie premiere. But the one trip that may spark your interest is their VIP vacation to the Grand Canyon that includes a $500 shopping spree for new gear and six days of adventure in one of America’s most popular national parks. While there, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the Canyon by jeep and white water raft, and soar high above the park in a private helicopter for a bird’s eye view of the surrounding area.
If you’re interested in winning the Grand Canyon tour, they are accepting entries through April 4th of next year, which means that you’ll have plenty of chances to fill out the entry form, stacking the odds in your favor for a win. Some of the other trips are being given away a lot sooner, as they are spreading out the awarding of prizes over the coming months.
Seems like a great way to see the Grand Canyon. Good luck on entering the contest!
