#GivingTuesday

Dec 01, 2015Brooklyn Boulders

Got enough flat screens for the entire 2016 during this year’s Black Friday? Stuffed yourself with crumbs, torn your arms off from too many climbs on Friendsgiving? Finally just unglued yourself from the screen because of #CyberMonday?
Suffer no longer from wasteful consumption, or the plague of buyer’s remorse! This #GivingTuesday, earn the endorphins by donating to Brooklyn Boulders Foundation!
Their initiatives include:

CITY ROCKS

City Rocks empowers students of low-income communities to develop self-confidence, creativity, and the ability to succeed through the sport of rock climbing and mentorships. In 2015 City Rocks has successfully paired over 50 relationships with their mentees, positively impacting youth through physical movement and emotional guidance.

ADAPTIVE CLIMBING GROUP

A.C.G. is a community for people with permanent disabilities to have opportunities to inclusively participate in the sport of climbing. Adaptive Climbing is taking the already existing abilities of a person and helping them participate in the sport. If you have any physical disabilities and are looking for a challenging physical and mental experience, come join our group!

YOUTH SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMS

In the Summer of 2015 we were able to award the Summer Adventures scholarship to two brothers. We hope to continue to expand our scholarship, so we are now offering a scholarship for one child to participate in BKBeast, our competitive youth climbing group!
