On June 17th, 2014, Norwich University student-athlete Connor Roberts suffered a fatal heart attack. Connor was a caring and smart individual whose life was taken too soon. His passion for sports and life could be felt by those who were fortunate enough to know him. The Connor Roberts Memorial Fund, was established by Connor's family and friends to ensure his memory can continue to touch the lives of others.

For the past five years, the men's lacrosse teams at Norwich University (where Connor was a member) and Castleton University (where Connor's siblings attended, including brother Ben who played lacrosse).

this year's event will be better than ever, as members of both teams will take on the challenge of a 24 hour climbing marathon.

The Norwich University men's lacrosse team will host the fifth-annual Climb for Connor from Saturday, Feb. 9 to Sunday, Feb. 10. This year, the event will take place on the Hurley Rock Wall in the Shapiro Field House on campus. The Castleton University men's lacrosse team will be hosting their annual climb from Saturday Feb.16 to Sunday, Feb. 17 at the Glenbrook Gym Rock Wall.

Climbers are seeking donations and sponsorships for the event, with all proceeds benefitting the CJR Memorial Fund, LTD. All are welcome at the event to climb, donate or show your support for our climbers in their 24-hour show of support for Connor. All proceeds from the event will ensure his memory can continue to touch the lives of others.
