Bringing Bouldering to All School Children

Welcome to our mission to bring the joy of bouldering to the children of Hilo, Hawaii!

We are based in Hilo, on the east side of the Island of Hawai'i, and we are passionate about making bouldering—an exciting and empowering sport—accessible to all, regardless of their financial means.

Imagine a world where every child has the opportunity to experience the thrill of scaling a boulder, pushing their physical limits, and gaining confidence with every climb. This is the world we envision, and we need your support to make it a reality.

In our community, we see the stark disparities in access to recreational activities. While some children have access to various sports and extracurricular programs, others face barriers due to financial constraints. We believe that every child, regardless of their background, should have the chance to discover the physical and mental benefits of bouldering.

Bouldering is more than just a sport; it's a journey of self-discovery. It fosters teamwork, builds resilience, and instills a sense of achievement in those who participate. By introducing bouldering to our local schools and community centers, we aim to inspire a new generation of climbers who will not only conquer physical challenges but also develop life skills that will serve them well in the future.

Our goal is clear: to make bouldering an activity that all school children in Hilo know about and aspire to enjoy. We want to provide scholarships, equipment, and training to those who might not otherwise have the chance to try bouldering. With your generous support, we can:

Provide Scholarships: Your donations will help us offer scholarships to children from low-income families, ensuring that they can participate in bouldering programs and classes free of charge.

Offer Training: We'll hire experienced bouldering instructors to teach our youth, nurturing their passion for this sport and helping them develop valuable skills.

Join us in this exciting journey to empower East Hawai'i's youth. Your donation, no matter the size, will make a significant difference in the lives of children who dream of reaching new heights.

Together, we can break down barriers and make bouldering a source of inspiration and growth for all. Thank you for being a part of this incredible mission.
