Registration closes tomorrow for IP5280’s Climbing for Kids

Registration closes at midnight on Tuesday, August 10.  Click here to register today!
Friday, August 13
6 a.m. at the base of Mount Bierstadt
After party at the Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers at around 2:30 p.m.

Whether you are an experienced mountaineer or a 14er first-timer, we want you to join Kempe during our ascent of Mount Bierstadt (elevation 14,060 ft.) during the 5th annual IP5280’s Climbing for Kids this Friday, August 13.  The event will raise money for The Children’s Hospital Foundation and The Kempe Foundation for the Prevention and Treatment of Child Abuse and Neglect.  Individual registration costs $50 and registrants are encouraged to raise at least $100 in donations.  Last year, the event raised $50,000!  So far this year, we have raised over $41,000, but we need still your help to reach our goal!

Climbers and non-climbers, join us after the climb at 2:30 p.m. for the after climb celebration with a performance by Colorado band Left Foot Green at the Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers in Centennial. Proceeds from every glass of Oskar Blues beer sold at the after party will go directly to Kempe and Children’s.

Does the thought of climbing a 14er seem a little too exhausting?  You can still help support the cause by donating to the Kempe team or joining us for the after party.

IP5280 would like to thank its sponsors: Party City, UMB Bank, Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers, Left Hand Brewing Company, Oskar Blues Brewery, iX MiXer, Polycom, LinkLogic, Metro E Networks, Peak Planning Group, Hannah Rose Knows…, Whole Foods SouthGlenn, and Left Foot Green.
