2021 FundRaising

2021 Fundraising Drive - Support Your Sport

Hey climbers! Thank you so much for your support. The 2021 Fundraiser was a great success.

Still want to help out? Feeling inspired by a great climb? You can donate at any time. Also, we really, really appreciate monthly contributions. Even just $10 a month helps in our operation budget and lessens the load on our annual fundraiser.

Thanks again to the following companies and community members for their support of our 2021 Fundraiser.
