Climb Up so Kids can Grow Up


Climb Up so Kids can Grow Up


September 22 and 23, 2007 — Climb, boulder, run, ride, hike, walk, or anything! Climb Up So Kids Can Grow Up is a growing partnership between outdoor recreation enthusiasts and American Foundation for Children with AIDS. Together with our sponsors, we invite “climbers” everywhere to bring awareness to the pediatric AIDS pandemic and to raise funds so AFCA can continue to send life saving anti-retroviral (ARV) medication to children affected by HIV/AIDS.

Join climbers like Rocco Bocchicchio who will be attempting to climb 50 boulder problems in one day in the Gunks, NY. "I set up a page that explains what I'm going to be doing, and the page also makes it possible for people to pledge money via the internet." says Rocco.

"I really like doing charitable events, and am really happy when I can do one that combines climbing with helping those in need.I'm excited to have the opportunity to climb for unselfish reasons!" — Rocco Bocchicchio —

Children like Mary (pictured above) should have the chance to dream of what she wants to be when she is older. She should be able to attend school and play with her friends. Let's “climb up” so that she may grow up!

Join us on September 22 and 23, 2007 and climb, ride, hike or walk up the mountain, hill, rock, wall, boulder or any challenge of your choice and help us in our fight to save the next generation.
