In April 2014, 46Climbs began doing fundraising work for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, after the co-founder Kolby, lost a fellow teammate and friend to suicide at a young age. After battling with grief for many years, he eventually teamed up with Catherine and together they built an event to battle the sensitive issue.
As a kick-starter for the foundation, the team attempted to hike 46 Adirondack High Peaks within 7 days, which would total 189 miles. Though the team did not meet their goal due to many unseen obstacles, the goal of raising funds for suicide prevention was superseded. Since 46Climbs has turned into an annual event encouraging individuals across the United States to take on the up and down challenges of depression and support one another of conquering suicide prevention. 46Climbs is an opportunity to share in, support, and appreciate the people and world around us.
This year, Sticker Genius was contacted by the organization to request our help in creating the events “Climb Packages” which include a dry fit t-shirt, sticker, and bandana that help to raise awareness about the event and its goals. Our team jumped at the opportunity to help and provided the foundation with Removable Genius Vinyl Clear Decals which will hopefully help them to meet their goals of raising over 70,000 dollars for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention this year.
