On Belay: Community through Adventure

Join a community of kids who know what it’s like when someone you love has cancer. Get a day full of happy. Doing things you’ve never done, in places you’ve never been, with new friends you’ll never forget.

A big congratulations goes out to On Belay Board Member & climber, Andy Crowley who climbed a frozen waterfall 90 times in 12 hours all to benefit On Belay!  When asked how he felt the morning after the climb he said "Happy as a clam, but a bit sore." Not bad for 12 hours of ice climbing.  Nice work Andy!

Thanks to everyone who pledged or donated.  Your support will go directly to programs for youth who are affected by a family member's cancer.  We truly appreciate your support (Andy does, too).

When a big illness hits a family the kids are affected so much and for some reason there is such little support for them. There is so much focus on the family crisis sometimes the kids are left on their own. On-Belay puts the focus right on the kids. I cannot thank you enough for what you are doing for so many kids that would not have the opportunity otherwise.

BIG thanks to On Belay for another wonderful evening! What you do for children is truly special. My girls are better people for having had these experiences with you. We are truly grateful for On-Belay, and the amazing programs you provide!

Coop and Sadie had such a fantastic time on Saturday. I couldn’t believe how their energy and enthusiasm carried with them all weekend. It was more powerful than I thought and considering what they’re going through right now, it was really amazing to experience. Thank you for that!
