Thank you for all of the stoke you’re sharing with us during this challenging time. We are so comforted but the amount of support we’ve received and the amount of support you’ve showed each other….even while we were closed. Members have opted-in, bid on auction items, participated in the Better Together campaign and even donated to the Chalk Bag Fund – and for all of that, we can’t thank you enough.
Over the last few weeks, we’ve seen a different need arise in our neighborhoods and would like to offer up a few other ways to support your community. There are many organizations right in our backyards that are working towards a more inclusive outdoors. While this is not nearly a complete list of deserving organizations, here are just a few of the organizations we’ve worked with, researched, and given to over the past few years. Please consider them if you are in a place to financially support your community or have time to volunteer.

In addition, we are going to continue building our Chalk Bag Fund (CBF). The CBF was established in response to the COVID-19 crisis. It’s a fund that provides direct financial support to the team members in need at Planet Granite, Earth Treks and Movement Climbing + Fitness. While they gyms may be opening, our team members are still recovering and we’re committed to seeing them through. The Chalk Bag Fund will live on and will be used as a relief fund for team members through the many different life challenges we will face together.DONATE
Again, thank you, without all of you, we wouldn’t be this amazing community that we are lucky to call family!
