Climbing for Children with Autism Deserve Education
In February of 2017, a group of fundraisers will be climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise $19,340.00 for Children with Autism Deserve Education (C.A.D.E.), a Minnesota 501c3 nonprofit organization benefiting children with autism. From the board members of this organization to the climbers, the C.A.D.E. Foundation is 100% volunteer based. All net proceeds received from this event and every other event hosted by C.A.D.E. will be awarded to children with autism through various grants!
Through the collection of sponsorship's from local businesses, personal donations, in-kind donations, and proceeds gathered from a series of organized sub-events, we plan to raise $19,340.00. This amount equates to one dollar per vertical foot ascended during the climb. Your donation will truly make a difference in positively changing the lives of children with autism! Any and all help is appreciated!
