Blue Granite hosts climbing fundraiser

Blue Granite Climbing Gym is hosting a fundraiser, Outdoor Climb-a-Thon 2020, to support greater access to climbing and the outdoors for marginalized and/or disadvantaged communities.

The fundraiser will take place until Aug. 22, which is Global Climbing Day. Participants are encouraged to get outside and climb as many outdoor pitches as possible while practicing physical distancing.

The three nonprofits Blue Granite is raising money for are No Man’s Land Film Festival, PGM ONE and Tahoe Climbing Coalition.

To participate, register, choose one of the nonprofits and pay a $10 registration fee. Solicit pledges from friends and family. Donors can donate flat donations or a dollar amount per pitch. This fundraiser only works if participants get donations.

Use the online scorecard to keep track of climbs; the Climb-a-Thon is based on the honor system. Climbers who climb the most pitches and raise the most money will win prizes. | bluegraniteclimbing.com
