We partnered with two fantastic community organizations – BridgeIISports and Catalyst Sports. Bridge II Sports is a nationally recognized nonprofit in Durham that provides sporting opportunities for children and adults with physical challenges. Catalyst Sports is an Atlanta-based non-profit dedicated to bringing adaptive climbing to anyone with a physical disability.
With 27 participants ranging from ages 6-60yrs, 40 volunteers from all walks of life, and many family members and friends coming to watch, we hosted over 100 total people at the event. It was, by all of our measures, a huge success! Every participant said that they would want to rock climb again and every volunteer wanted to be part of future events hosted by Duke Adaptive Climbing.
