Fundraising Final Date

EVENT DATE Jul 31, 2016
We're at it again! We're giving youths from disadvantaged backgrounds a chance to rock climb!
Joanna and I held our first event earlier this year to give youths from disadvantaged backgrounds a chance to go rock climbing and had 11 females from Chicago nonprofit Girls in the Game come out for an incredibly rewarding day of climbing.
NOW, we want to make this available to as many youth as possible. We're teaming up again with Girls in the Game as well as another youth-based Chicago nonprofit to give these youths a chance to experience the adventure, challenge and sport of rock climbing. We not only believe in the benefits of the sport (confidence building, problem solving, communication skills, and fitness), but sincerely want to give others a chance to experience the adventure of it as well.
We're fundraising for 9+ events throughout the year (and hopefully more) as well as opportunities for those truly interested to further pursue the sport long term. Your gift of ANY amount will go toward their entrance fee with gear, belay lesson, transportation, and snacks. CrowdRise requires a $10 minimum, and a small transaction fee will apply. For those wanting to avoid the transaction fee or give less than $10, please feel free to get in touch with Joanna or Nari! Gifts or questions are welcome. All funds will go completely towards this cause. Thank you for partnering with us!!
If you have a group that would be interested in something like this, please contact Joanna at Joanna.Z.Tang@gmail.com or Nari at firstname.lastname@example.org.
