On Saturday, March 17, two CascadiaNow! projects, Vertical Generation (VG) and The Duncan Connection (DC) joined together at the Seattle Bouldering Project (SBP) for DC’s first ever Movement Event (no parenthetical acronym needed). The DC mission is to provide free or reduced cost fitness and wellness resources to all people, regardless of monetary background, culture, or gender identity. At VG, they believe in sharing the invaluable experience and culture of rock climbing along with the love for the outdoors with youth who otherwise may never have the opportunity. Like with most VG Movement Events, some DC participants had prior exposure to climbing, but most were brand new to the sport. What made this event unique was the age range of participants, which spanned three generations of new climbers! As always, this Movement Event was hugely inspiring and encouraging as seasoned climbers shared their knowledge and passion with newbies, and couldn’t help but get energized themselves. We at CN! look forward to more VG and DC events in the near future! Read more about the event here.
