On November 7th, 2021 Prescott area Emergency responders from Prescott Fire Department, Prescott Police Department, and Life Line Ambulance partnered with Courageous Kids Climbing based out of Idaho and Gripstone Climbing located at 319 N. Lee Blvd in Prescott to give 17 special needs children the opportunity have a morning of rock climbing fun. Many of our personnel volunteered their time to give these children an opportunity they will never forget.
This event was organized by Courageous Kids Climbing’s Executive Director Jeff Riechmann who also organizes events in Idaho, Washington, Nevada, California as well as Arizona. This annual event is open to children with special developmental and physical needs.
