WCC and CityROCK 16 Days of Activism Climbing Event


On Sunday 4th December, 9 women and 13 children from the St. Anne’s Home for abused women and children in Woodstock, Cape Town attended a climbing event at CityROCK Indoor Climbing Gym in Observatory, Cape Town in aid of the 16 Days of Activism to raise awareness for violence against women and children. The 20 volunteers from WCC club, Top Out Climbing Club, and CityROCK climbers made sure that the 9 women and 2 children got to do plenty of climbing.  The other 11 children, aged 5 years and younger, are considered too young to do climbing and were entertained by 5 volunteers with lots of games and treats.



Following on from the event, it has been confirmed that 7 women and 2 children would like to continue climbing and Top Out Climbing Club will be including them in their coaching schedule in 2017 pro bono.


A huge thank you to all who volunteered their time and energy and to those who donated food and gifts for the event.
