May 31, 2014- Founder, Kareemah Batts and A.C.G. medal winning climber, Jon Sedor were special guest speakers at the Amputee Coalition's Limb Loss Education Day. It was so amazing meeting new folks and learning about all the great companies and programs out there helping those with limb difference. We thank you for the opportunity to share the sport of adaptive climbing with others.
June has been an action packed month and it keeps getting more exciting! Last week we got to participate in Outdoor Fest where outdoor related events took place all around the city. Our participation included an appearance at a Manhattan Wholefoods; being the guest non-profit for a day. Also, hosting our own fun creation, the Adaptive Climbing Contest. There anyone got the chance to see what it's like to climb adaptive like our regular participants. For their willingness to climb a mile in our harness they got a chance at fabulous prizes thanks to Eastern Mountain Sports and Tent and Trails.

June 10, 2014- We spent a fun evening with NYU Hospital's Pediatric's out patient  Physical and Occupational therapy department's kids! Ages 3- 16 got climbing and made new friends!
