As climbers, Iím sure most of you share the love and passion for climbing that we climbers enjoy. Climbing has enhanced my life; the things I have learned, the amazing people I have met and the struggles I have overcome. This success is largely due to the strength that I have found on the rock and in the gym. I think it would be so amazing to share this passion with less fortunate kids who could really benefit from having such a positive force in their lives.

Urban Peaks is running its first fundraising event, Climb for Kids, hosted by MetroRock in Everett, MA. Climb for Kids is a climb-a-thon scheduled for Saturday, November 19, 2011, 4pm-10pm. Participation fee is $25, all proceeds go to Urban Peaks.

The gym will be closed to the general public during this event, open only to those participating in the climb-a-thon. To sign up you can email Sara Gillers at sara@urbanpeaks.org or Bill Schifone at bill@urbanpeaks.org Upon signing up, you will be emailed additional information about the event. Along with your participation fee, we will send you a pledge sheet so that you can ask friends and family for sponsorship: the more you climb, the more money you raise, and the more money Urban Peaks has for its programs.

Urban Peaks is a nonprofit organization started to subsidize funding for underprivileged youth to give them the opportunity to participate in climbing and other activities in gyms and/or outside.
