This year, along with masks and social distancing, we are adding a sPoOkY-sWeeT prize giveaway to our annual Halloween festivities to spotlight our partners and increase support for our Equity and Outreach Program. Your admission entitles you to be a part of the sPoOkY-sWeeT prize giveaway, but we also invite you to contribute more during your climbing session to help us raise additional funds for this sPoOk-tAcuLaR program!

The Equity and Outreach Program supports youth and BIPOC (black, Indigenous and people of color) communities to better learn about and access climbing, outdoor spaces, and environmental education, both within ASCEND and the larger community. 

These are a few ways ASCEND plans to carry out this initiative:

  • Provide transportation to and from ASCEND, as well as outdoor spaces
  • Supplement membership, camp, team, and other program costs
  • Prioritize youth-only climbing days, film screenings, speaker events, and other educational opportunities
