Event Summary

Light it Up Blue

Light it Up Blue event I’m having April 22nd.

April is autism awareness month and to celebrate this I’m going to be joining Sprit Rock Climbing centre in Kimberley to put on an awareness event. 

This event is in April 22nd, 10-2.

If you wear blue you get $5.00 discount on your climb.

We’d love to get lots of people out to light up the gym and help raise autism awareness.

Climbing is a fantastic sport for youth with autism.

 Autism is a developmental disability that affects social interaction and communication, and can be accompanied by repetitive behaviors, restricted interests, and uneven motor skills.

Some are finding that rock climbing, with its emphasis on gross and fine motor skills, tactile stimulation (the texture of the rocks or the holds), and reliance on structured communication, is a good therapeutic fit for children with ASDs.

Climbers are motivated to communicate by the joy of climbing and risk avoidance. Rock climbing also provides problem-solving skills, independent thinking and choice-making and enhanced risk taking decisions in a safe and nurturing environment.
