“Don’t be afraid to fail.
Be afraid not to try.”
A Rock Climbing Team
United Rocks is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that uses competitive rock climbing to support kids with intellectual and developmental disabilities, ages 3+.
We have created a rock climbing team for kids with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We have practices Sundays for 2 hours.
It’s amazing to see the progress that our kids are accomplishing every week! Either with their climbing goals, staying focus or as simple as following directions.
