OUR NON-PROFIT, SOUTHERN CLIMBING IS UP AND RUNNING! 
As some of you may know, for over a year, we have been in the process of setting up a new non-profit, which will benefit our team kids (and parents)! Please see below and consider donating and/or getting more involved in this sport our climbers love.

Southern Climbing, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to promote and bring awareness to the benefits of rock climbing mainly through its support of Stone Summit competitive youth climbing teams. Rock climbing instills confidence, builds character, teaches goal-setting, and helps children and adolescents grow into capable adults with a strong sense of community. By aiding youth climbing, including providing financial assistance for climbers attending international competitions, Southern Climbing achieves two goals: helping grow the sport of climbing and investing in our future.

Please help us reach our 2017 fundraising goal of $10,000 by donating now: http://www.ssclimbingteam.com/#southern-climbing -- (contributions are typically tax-deductible; check with your tax advisor). If you would like to get involved, please contact: ssclimbingteam@gmail.com.
