On Saturday 11th November, Glen Eden Extreme Edge started its annual Climbathon for Starship Hospital. This event runs over 4 days to allow as many Rock Hoppers to take part as possible.  Each participant is sponsored per climb or a donation. They are encouraged to do 25 or 50 or 75 climbs. For the really keen 100 climbs. All of the money raised goes to The Starship Foundation. A total of 16 Hoppers, 2 mums, and 1 dad took part on Saturday. Most had decided to do 50 or more climbs. On Monday 13th Nov the Monday Hoppers are taking up the challenge. Both classes have a second day, if they were unable to do the climbathon. Saturday Hoppers 18th Nov and Mondays class 20th Nov. When they have finished most participants would have climbed between 500m to 1000 m vertically.  We are hoping to raise $5000.00 towards medical equipment. Further donations can be made at the bucket in our reception desk. A big thank you to all the sponsors and the participants. We will keep you posted on the final tally.
