In this post, EJ talks about how he’s been spending his summer climbing and raising money for an adaptive sports program. Be sure to follow our summer series to read how students and faculty are spending their time away from WMS.
I climb every day. Every day, every season. I can’t imagine not being able to do that. I work in a climbing gym and many of my long-term goals are centered around the pursuit of the sport.
What are your summer plans?
So far this summer I’ve been working. I’ve split my time between my local climbing gym, school work, and home. Last month I participated in a fundraiser for an adaptive sports program. I climbed a vertical mile and raised over $2000 for Paradox Sports to support disabled athletes climbing. Be sure to check out my fundraising page: Paradox Mile- EJ Rimerman.
One really cool thing you have planned during your time away from WMS
In my time away this summer, I’m spending three weeks in August paddling whitewater on the Ottawa River in Canada. I’m super pumped to have the chance to improve my skills.
