Climbing gym membership for Ariah who wants to have fun and be healthy

Posted Jan 8, 2024
Ariah recently visited a climbing gym with her foster mom and immediately fell in love with the sport. She discovered that she is stronger than she thought, and her height is an advantage to climbing. Since her first visit, Ariah has continued climbing for the last month and pushes herself to get better. Since climbing is an expensive sport, Ariah is asking for a student membership to the gym so she can attend unlimited times in the spring semester. Granting this wish will bring her immense joy!

Ariah is 15 years old and lives in NM

Ariah came into care several years ago and has not let it slow her down. She is academically driven and will not settle for anything less than her best. Ariah is very fond of books, particularly the Harry Potter series, and spends much of her time learning something new through books. She's a self-proclaimed "nerd." Ariah also enjoys spending time outdoors, including walking, camping, observing nature, and biking. Additionally, Ariah is excited about going to college but is often told that foster care kids "don't even graduate high school," and she is using this as her driving force to excel in school.
