A HUGE thank you from the ACAYB team to all of the supporters! There is no way we could have pulled this off without the support from the local, national and international climbing community, AND the local ACA community! The parents of the ACA youth are the real heroes here because without their support, none of this money could have been raised!
This year, we've added a new fundraising tool to our arsenal! We just had our first 50/50 draw last weekend at Bouldering Provincials at the Calgary Climbing Centre- Hanger. It was a great success!
Try your luck and contribute to a great cause at our next 50/50 event.
Look for us on:
Feb 25th 2017- Calgary Climbing Centre- Stronghold- Calgary
April 8th 2017- University of Alberta- Wilson Centre- Edmonton
April 22nd 2017- Calgary Climbing Centre- Hanger- Calgary
April 29th/30th 2017- Elevation Place- ACA Provincials- Canmore
Saturday the ACAYB were at the Sally Border Climbing Challenge celebrating the 15th anniversary of the climbing gym! This event was a scramble format competition, you had three hours to climb and in your top 7 climbs you had to have at least one of: boulder problem, top rope climb, lead climb and mix-climbing climb. It was really fun to watch and all those who attended had a blast- I think some are inspirer even by the mix-climbing now ;)
Chris Neve, manager of the gym, raised all of the product for auction. This was an insanely huge job and massive contribution to the ACAYB, so on behalf of all of us, thank you for your time and efforts here, Chris!!!
With the support of the climbers and the ACA parents we were easily able to auction off all of the product and made $1338!!!! Totally floored by the support this weekend and looking forward to the next event and the Hanger April 02!
Huge shipment of the best chalk on the market! Chalk Matters!
