      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

American Foundation for Children with AIDS

Recommended Posts

I'm pleased to announce that we have partnered up with the American Foundation for Children with AIDS to help them promote The Climb Up So Kids Can Grow Up. The Foundation lends support to the childhood AIDS pandemic in sub-saharan Africa in the form of medical care. Like our support with the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, we will be providing free advertising to this important organization.





Having worked in AIDS research the last 12 years I cannot overstate the amount of human suffering that is occurring in sub-saharan Africa due to AIDS, Kaposi Sarcoma, and KS associated lymphoproliferative disorders. There are regions were the HIV rate is over 50% and villages were the KS rate is 90%. The hospitals are so poor that people who can afford chemotherapy treatment sit in the hospital without any nursing care because the hospital can't afford latex gloves. These pathogens are evolving and are becoming increasingly aggressive in young children.


We'll be posting more information about this great organization in the near future.
