Melissa was one of many supporters who shared their heartfelt photos that captured the joys of being outdoors. The contest was part of our Go Outside and Play campaign to get Americans off of the couch and out to the great outdoors. If you haven't already, you can still be part of this campaign by taking the pledge to Go Outside and Play!
