Thriving Despite The Pandemic!
In 1989, Gene and Jo Ann Taylor created and launched The Walking Connection and in the wake of 9/11 they added iConquer Adventures in 2001. Both The Walking Connection and iConquer are independent Glendale and Peoria, Arizona small businesses that offer walking and hiking adventure travel to the Grand Canyon and internationally to more than 30 countries across the globe. The Walking Connection and iConquer are owned and operated by Jo Ann and Gene Taylor, Arizona residents since 1979.
At Grand Canyon, iConquer Adventures provides national non-profit organizations with programming and operations that they utilize as capital fundraising campaigns. To date iConquer has helped raise more than $26,000,000 to research leukemia, diabetes, autism, cancers and genetic disorders, as well as in supporting veteran groups and students.
The Walking Connection leads luxury walking and hiking adventures and has guided thousands of people on experiential vacations on 6 continents. Both companies do good things for people and Gene has the pictures to prove it! :)
The pandemic has effectively closed all of Gene and Jo Ann’s traditional travel-related business since February. That will likely extend until the end of 2020. But the pandemic isn’t keeping them from learning and innovating their businesses with the continued goal of sharing the world with their guests and customers. With thousands of photos of spectacular sky’s, amazing landscapes and incredible wildlife to share, Gene and Jo Ann have created the Adventure Travel Photo Shop that features images they have made while traveling around the world. In the shop, “Gene’s Journey”, is a curated collection of fine art prints designed to bring a bit of the glorious world indoors to you at your home, your office/business, and to share with family and friends.
