The First of Vertical Generation's Movement Events was a Huge Success

The very first of Vertical Generation's monthly Movement Events took place in September at the Seattle Bouldering Project with a group of fourteen 6th-12th graders from Mary’s Place, a homeless shelter for women and children. Movement Events are monthly Vertical Generation events that bring groups of kids to the climbing gym, giving them a fun evening of climbing, games, food, and community building.
