Climbing Success for Rebecca Hounsell

 

Climbing Success for Rebecca Hounsell

Friday the 20th of November, 2020

Congratulations to Rebecca on a huge month of Climbing events

Rebecca Hounsell 10SE attended the National Climbing Champs and team selection in Wellington. Rebecca came 2nd place and was selected for the development squad.     

Rebecca also recently took part in a Charity climb which raised nearly $14,000 for a charity close to Rebecca’s heart - Kenzie’s Gift.

Kenzie’s Gift care for children facing grief and loss, including providing professional counselling services to young people who have suffered great loss. Rebecca’s goal was to recognise their work and raise funds to help them continue their amazing support for bereaved young people and their families.

Rebecca is delighted with the outcome!  

Also, as a result of these two events, Rebecca has been offered the opportunity to learn to route set (put up the new climbing routes). This is quite an accolade for a climber her age. Congratulations and well done to Rebecca, and we wish her well for her ongoing climbing achievements.
