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 or Bill Schifone at 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.
