Join us at Call to Arms Brewery on July 8th (6-10pm) ! 

The event will feature great beer, a silent auction and a few words from the special guest, Jon Bernhard. There are some awesome silent auction items from:

Black Diamond

DMM 

Vibram

Mad Rock

FITS socks 

Mountain Khakis Denver 

For over 30 years Jon has been living with a non-curable lung disease, Mycobacterium Avium Complex (MAC) and recently things have taken a turn for the worst. So I've taken it upon myself to help out my friend, climbing guide, and advocate for at risk youth. 

Over the last 3 decades he's been volunteering at National Jewish Health, the hospital where he was first diagnosed. Through his non-profit foundation (WADY), Jon uses his connections with climbing companies to provide jackets, socks and other winter gear to underserved mountain communities all while helping gumbies like me become a better climber in the little free time he has left.

This guy cut his teeth in Devils Lake learning to lead with framing hammers and pitons. Then when his crew had enough fun at DL they headed to bum around Yosemite. He was there back in the good ole days, so some of you old timers probably know Jon. 

Hit it me up with any questions, and I hope some of you can make out...I need more climbing partners. Some of us will be climbing the following Sunday if anyone wants to join.Wàsss

Great times after a day of climbing.  Go hit Eldo, Table Mtn, or even the gym.  

Then come hang out & share good stories.

Socks have arrived. 

If you guys don't know much about FITS, they are an awesom company that donates tons of socks to kids in underserved mountain towns in CO ! They are definitely a company worth supporting.

Sound like a plan to me

  Dynafit Bindings will be another rad item to bid on and win.
