Climbing shoes for Ariah on Christmas

Posted Dec 8, 2023
Ariah has been visiting a climbing gym with her foster mom and has found she has a natural talent for the sport. She pushes herself to get better and take on more challenging climbs. She is hoping to spend next semester visiting the climbing gym and maybe participating in a youth competition. These shoes will allow Ariah to not have to pay for rentals every time she visits and focus on her growth!

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.
