Big Thanks to All of the Climbing Communities for Helping Pat Ament!

Posted on: August 27th, 2012 by rbriggs

Less than a week ago the Boulder Climbing Community put out the call for help for one of our own, who was down and struggling financially for survival.  We had never done anything like this before, but hoped the internet would help ignite the cause.  So we posted fundraiser information on the BCC website and set up a PayPal, then reached out to other communities of climbers.  Almost immediately, the SuperTopo community stepped up, and the Mountain Project community, and the American Alpine Club community, and apparently many others.  Because the donations have been pouring in, as well as many words of appreciation for Pat on the forums.  We’ll be able to give all of this money, so generously donated by climbers, to Pat.

In case you still want to donate, just go to: http://boulderclimbingcommunity.net/2012/08/22/pat-ament-fundraiser/

THANKS TO CLIMBERS EVERYWHERE FOR COMING TOGETHER TO HELP!
