Thank you everyone for supporting our Climb-for-Kids annual Christmas Fundraiser (Dec 16-21, 2013). This year, 10 athletes set up their individual fundraising campaigns to raise money. At the end, we hosted a climbing comp. at the Cliffhanger Vancouver and a bouldering comp. at the Hive. Overall, we have 190 donors and raised $4090.
50% of proceeds went to BC Children’s Hospital, the province’s only full-service, pediatric acute care hospital and serves the one million children living in BC and the Yukon.
50% of proceeds went to Climb and Conquer Society Canada, a charity that provides affordable access of climbing to children and youth and their parents (with full subsidy for families in need) so they can use climbing to empower themselves physically, mentally and spiritually to overcome challenges and achieve big objectives.
The Vancouver Rock Climbing Group sponsored all the admin costs e.g. material, promotion, PayPal fees, etc.
This successful annual charity project won’t be possible without the following supporters!
