THE STORY:

Our last field trip with the 7th and 8th grade students from LEARN Charter Academy (North Lawndale neighborhood) in Chicago was to Title Boxing Club. Now it's time to CLIMB!!! We are raising funds to take a second field trip of this school year to Brooklyn Boulders Climbing Community in Chicago's west loop neighborhood!

Our vision for a field trip is simple, to give the students a fun and interactive experience away from their cell phones, tablets and computers. We have found that rock climbing is great entertainment and has extensive fitness value allowing kids to move outside of their comfort zone in a safe and controlled environment that will serve to build confidence, promote self esteem, and teach kids that overcoming fear is a healthy part of life.

This low impact, endurance-style workout is easy on the joints, and helps keeps kids moving and burning energy while they rise to the challenge, pulling, lifting, twisting, and stretching their way to a lifetime of fitness. Our field trips are a part of our ICAN BeFit! program which is dedicated to creating a more active lifestyle within the youth of today. Any donation will help!

 

$800 Goal for 80 students

ONLY $10 per student which includes: 2 busses, snacks, water and the cost at Brooklyn Boulders

 

Thank you! And now I challenge each of YOU donating today to try rock climbing or another healthy activity outside of your comfort zone! 

With all that said, I will leave you with the quote below:

"I don't want to write about climbing; I don't want talk about it; I don't want to photograph it; I don't want to think about it; all I want to do is do it." — Chuck Pratt.
