Local Climbing Programs
Learn to climb, hone your skills, be part of a community.
Sometimes it is nice to just hangout with other people your age who know what it is like to have cancer and have some fun. Twice a year we lead multi-week “learn to climb” class for cancer survivors and their supporters as well as monthly climb nights. It is a relaxed and low key way to get to know some other cancer survivors in Calgary and the surrounding area.
Who: Any cancer patient/survivor between the age of 18-39 and one of their close supporters of the same age.
When: See below.
Where: Climbing Gyms around Calgary, AB.
Why: Because sometimes it is nice to hang out with people your age who know what it is like to have cancer.
