- Buy a personalized climbing hold for the gym
- Pre-purchase a gym pass
- Pick up a T-shirt
- Buy some business advertising
An indoor climbing gym (similar to those in the photos above) will be an incredible asset to the Powell River community – a fun, healthy place for people of all ages to gather, particularly in the dreary winter months.
We are so close to making this a reality…
- We have an army of enthusiastic and supportive people like you on our side
- We have a space to build with the best landlord we could ever ask for
- We have a professionally done architectural design for our climbing gym
- We have an incredible grant secured that is going to pay for the majority of our costs
- We have had the climbing wall constructed!
All of this amazing progress… all in less than a year! We can hardly believe it!
But we’re not QUITE out of the water yet!
We want to open as soon as possible in the New Year 2017, but that’s only if we keep getting your support…
We Still Need Your Help!
The Powell River Community Forest Grant has provided us with the vast majority of money we need to open the doors.
THIS IS SO AWESOME!! (thank you again Forestry peeps & City of PR folks for this incredible honour!)
However, surprise costs continue to arise at every moment, and we can still use all the help we can get. We need a hand to cover things such as insurance, first month’s rent, and training resources for our staff and volunteers.
Want the gym to open as soon as possible?? Keeping sending in your support!
Here are a bunch of ways you can support us now in our final push:
Want to help us out and buy a neat gift for yourself or a loved one?
Why not pledge $20 to buy us a climbing hold!
When the climbing gym opens, a hold with your name or chosen phrase will be on the wall, and it’ll be your job to climb around and find the one that belongs to you! Super fun!
Just click on ‘Add to Cart’ button to buy your hold now with paypal or credit card! ($20.00 each). Quantity can be adjusted on checkout page.
Important: Once you purchase, please reply to email receipt to tell us which name or phrase you’d like on your holds. Max 5 short words per hold
If you already know you’re going to buy an access pass (or punch pass) when the gym opens, why not do it now and help us open faster?
Then fill out the contact form below (or email us at email@example.com) letting us know which one you want, and we’ll send you an invoice and arrange a way to pay that works for you.
Want to look like a super cool dude and also support the gym?
Pick up a t-shirt from Sherri at Blue Steel Imaging. Right now we’ve got adult sizes in red and dark grey, and adult lady cuts in dark grey.
Order directly from her website or in person at her store below the bowling alley; $12 from each sale goes to the gym cause!
If none of the above options seem on target for you, then you can always just drop us a straight donation for whatever amount you’d like!
Anything you can send our way is greatly appreciated 🙂
