Happy ! We have a lot of people and organizations that we are grateful to! ❤️🌈🦋

🦋 Our Warriors and their families attended the Phoenix Rising game, and not only did they have fun cheering on the Rising, but they were also able to participate in a before-match cheer tunnel - getting to high-five the team! They were also able to take the field for a post-match photo, and as one of our Warrior moms said, "The before-game tunnel was fun. All the kids lined up and got to shake all the players' hands as they walked on the field. It was a great night!" Big Hugs to the Phoenix Rising Football Club for a great night celebrating our amazing Warrior families!
🦋 We loved hanging out with our teen warriors and going indoor rock climbing! Thank you to the Phoenix Rock Gym for hosting and sponsoring our Teen Rock Climbing Event, and big hugs to all the warriors who attended!
🦋 Thank you and big hugs to the Greater Phoenix Chamber - Valley Young Professionals who made chemo covers and craft kids for our warriors! We appreciate all of your support
🦋 to the Rotary Club of Scottsdale for hosting us at their Charity Golf Classic! The Rotary members raised over $5,000, which will support our programs and mission here at Amanda Hope Rainbow Angels!
🦋 to the incredible team at Walmart for their donation! Through their generous contribution, we will be able to provide gift cards to our families!
🦋 Thank you to JesterZ Improv for hosting the Love and Laughter Benefit Comedy show, where proceeds from the show’s ticket sales went directly back to Amanda Hope Rainbow Angels! This fantastic event was filled with fun & laughter, and JesterZ brought the community together to share LOVE for our Warriors & their families.
I first went to Phoenix Rock Gym (in Tempe) in 1994 as a way to distract myself while going through a breakup. Fell in love with indoor climbing and this gym. Would go every few months on a day pass.

Started going several times a week on membership passes in 2004 when I started law school, and never really stopped. At my most fit, I was a 5.11 climber, now I struggle up a 5.10...

This place feels more like home to me than my home. Congrats on turning 30!

(I've brought so many friends in to try out climbing, I'm pretty sure I could recite their welcome instructional video by heart...)

Calling all climbers!

The City of Tempe is holding open voting for the Park Master Plan. This plan could include the building of an outdoor rockwall at Tempe Beach Park. I'm asking for the help of all the local climbers to go cast their vote at the link below. The picture in the comments is the example the city is using for the wall which was built in Columbus Ohio.

Click the link below, scroll down to "How should we activate the area surrounding Tempe Town Lake?" and then take the survey

If you are lucky you can purchase a month pass for $35 (the price we charged in 1992). How you ask? We will have dice at the front desk.
