We hope you all have started your New Year as planned! We want to send another big thank you to all that supported our 2013 finale fundraiser, the CLIMB Leadership Awards and Holiday Gala. The individuals honored have displayed leadership in various fields of human endeavor!

Over the holidays, CLIMB also hosted the annual holiday program: The Gift of Giving, in partnership with BlackNLA, Paul Pierce's The Truth Fund, and Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. -- providing 50 families with holiday gifts and a wonderful festive day of holiday cheer!
