Climb For Kids
Thank you! People like you have already donated a total of $106,007!
Climb For Kids is a non-profit organization that was established in late 2007 whose primary goal is to raise money for fetal syndrome support organizations. We are following a special avenue in fund raising where the mission is to have fun, challenge yourself, and raise awareness for syndromes that are effecting more and more kids each year. Twice as many babies die from twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) and other fetal syndromes than from SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) each year; yet more people are aware of SIDS.
The philosophy of Climb For Kids is to support other organizations which:
- Raise awareness of fetal syndromes such as TTTS
- Raise money for fetal syndrome research
- Help other parents who can not afford treatment
- Build a community of people and parents who want to help
Being located in the northwest, it is also clear that many of us also share the love of the mountains. What better way to reach these goals then doing what we all already enjoy? By melding together climbing and community, we can raise money and promote awareness at the same time.
Since the end of 2007, Climb For Kids has had a goal to raise $100,000 annually by hosting at least one climbing event during the summer. Each year, participants will be encouraged to raise money for a summit attempt of a large peak. Climb For Kids partners with professional climbing outfits, such as Alpine Ascents, to host a fun and safe event up a spectacular mountain.
Each year, Climb For Kids is pleased to host a few different climbs that can accommodate everyone's skillset, including one event internationally. We are excited to be traveling to China this year to participate in the Great Wall Marathon.
Proceeds of the organization are allocated to various fetal syndrome charities such as Fetal Hope. There will be no direct donations to parents, researchers, nor hospitals. Last year, Climb For Kids was proud to donate a significant amount of money to organizations in need.
