GWPC Surgical Climb-A-Thon
On November 18th at 6PM, GWPC, in partnership with the Bay Area Surgical Mission, is proud to sponsor the first ever Surgical Climb-A-Thon. What's this about? The Bay Area Surgical Mission, a group of volunteer physicians and nurses, travels each year to the Philippines to offer free surgical care to indigenous populations. The physicians who go on these missions donate their time as well as pay their own travel costs. All proceeds from the Climb-A-Thon go directly toward the purchase of medications, sutures, and bandages. $10 entry in the competition buys food and (alcoholic) beverage. Or better yet, you can get people to sponsor you per climb or at a flat rate and receive free entry into the event. Amazing prizes from Mountain Hardwear, Wrench Science, GWPC and other local businesses will be awarded to the individual who collects the most money in sponsorship as well as for the most vertical feet climbed, hardest route climbed, best nurse costume, etc. You can pick up a sponsorship packet at GWPC’s front desk.
