Climbing for Avi Memorial Fund

"You know that one guy in high school who was friends with everyone, who got all the hugs? That was him." To have met Avishek Sengupta, even just once, was to know what kindness looked like in a person.

Avi, a Towson graduate and avid rock climber, tragically lost his life. We'd love everyone and anyone to post any messages to his family and share memories among those who loved him.

As a memorial to his passion, a tribute will be made at Earth Treks Climbing Center in Columbia Maryland, where Avi was a member and instructor. All donated funds will be used to support those who wish to learn to climb in the future.

Please help us celebrate Avi's life and pass on his memory by donating. We miss you, Avi.
