For the 2nd year in a row, my friend Sean Ewers, with help from Prime Climb (indoor rock climbing gym) is putting together another awesome fundraiser event! This year's event (Dec. 8th, 2012) beneficiary will be the National Multiple Sclerosis Foundation-Connecticut Chapter. I was able to talk with Sean to ask him about this year's event.

Several people close to Sean have been affected by MS, which has given him reason to find a way to help and give back through his passion: climbing. With the success of last year's "Hera Rocks" fundraiser at Prime Climb, which raised about $1500 for ovarian cancer research, Sean hopes to have a repeat of the fun and excitement that went on last year. The "Climb for MS" event will have free admission from 1-8pm, a dyno competition, crate stacking comp., and slack lining. There will also be a raffle with rad prizes from Friksn, Organic Climbing, Evolv, Mad Rock, So Ill Holds, Julbo Sunglasses, Sanuk, New England Ropes, 5.10 climbing shoes, Pusher, Revolution Climbing, Detroit Rock Climbing Company, and Motivation Volumes. A bake sale will also be on hand to keep all the climbers energized for the day!
If you're not a climber, who cares! Stop by anyway and try it out and support a great cause!
All proceeds from bake sale, raffle, and donations will go to the National Multiple Sclerosis Foundation. Information about date, time and location of event can be found on the event Facebook page here.
