Support BCM this Holiday Season! 

The holiday season is upon us! Make an impact with your holiday shopping this year by supporting BCM with your gift list thanks to some of our supporters:  
Try Columbia and Introduce Urban Teens to the Outdoors

Not only does Columbia provide our teens with quality rain gear, but they are also introducing a new initiative- "Try Columbia and Introduce Urban Teens to the Outdoors" to further support BCM youth! A $5 donation will be made to BCM when customers at participating retailers simply try on a pair of Columbia shoes.

SFS Partnering with Positive Tracks!

Know a young climber that might be interested in Summit for Someone or fundraising for BCM? Their efforts could have double the impact! 
BCM has partnered with Positive Tracks, a national youth-centric non-profit, to help young people get active and give back through the Summit For Someone program! Positive Tracks has created a $25,000 Youth Fundraising Challenge to double funds generated by climbers ages 23 and under. Every dollar raised by young people and matched by Positive Tracks goes to BCM to transform the lives of under-served urban youth through wilderness mentoring experiences that instill critical life skills. With Positive Tracks' help, Big City Mountaineers' youth supporters aim to raise $50,000 for BCM, while teaching young people the rewards of making a difference using their own power!  
Contact Anna at anna@bigcitymountaineers.org to learn more about youth fundraising opportunities or family climbs!
