Why I Choose The Charity
At 6 years old, I had a traumatic injury to my arm and had to undergo seven surgeries at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Even at a young age, I knew I wanted to repay Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) for saving my arm and regaining my health. At 13 years old, I combined my passion for rock climbing with my desire to give back to CHOA. I asked my friends and family to pledge a donation per wall I climbed. I climbed 100 rock walls and raised $2500 for CHOA. Now that I am older, I am accepting the challenge again and I want to raise more money for CHOA.
How I Plan To Raise The Money
I plan to ask family and friends for donations to sponsor each wall I climb. I also want to call directly and post on social media about my wall climbs so more people can get involved. No matter how much I raise, I am ecstatic to be continuing this project. A HUGE thank you to Stone Summit for donating climb time so 100% of proceeds can be donated!
