For the past few months After-School All-Stars has been dreaming up a big, bold event that would help us raise cash to support our rapidly expanding programs in Newark and New York. We toyed with a few traditional ideas—cocktail reception, gala—before it dawned on us that we should be holding a fitness event that mirrors the challenge we pose to our All-Stars every day. We ask our All-Stars to dream big. We ask them to reach for the stars. We teach them to make healthy lifestyle choices and challenge them to engage in physical activity on a daily basis.
So why not issue the same challenge to our incredibly loyal network of supporters?
The All-Star Climb4Kids is like no fundraising event you’ve been a part of. If you’ve ever wanted to do more than write a check to support your favorite cause, here is your chance to get really involved. If you’re looking for motivation to stay fit after the summer ends but before the holidays begin, the climb couldn’t land at a better time. If you need an excuse to meet up with friends, here is your chance to train and compete together. If climbing to the 68th floor of a really tall building (4 World Trade Center!) is on your bucket list, well, here’s your chance to scratch it from the list! If you’re an avid stair climber hungry for a fall challenge, this event has your name written all over it.
Are you ready for the challenge?
