My name is Darcie Gabruck. I work as the Community Development Coordinator at YWCA Como Lake Gardens in Coquitlam, We offer subsidized housing for low-income single mothers and their children.
We were thrilled to hear about the opportunity for free rock climbing available through Climb and Conquer. Many of our families have been attending the monthly rock climbing sessions for several months now and they love it! The children have the chance to participate in a fun activity that they otherwise would not have the chance to do. They also have the opportunity to gain new skills and increased self-confidence. Many of the kids have told me they look forward to going back each month. And a few of our moms have also joined in the fun; they too have been having a great time. We are very grateful to have this opportunity for fun, fitness, and the support of the fantastic volunteers. Our families are hooked on the rock climbing adventure and hope the great team at Climb and Conquer are able to continue to provide this wonderful service to our children and moms.
