Climb for Captives started when a group of friends decided to turn their summer mountain climbing trip into a fundraiser to fight slavery. Since the first climb in 2008, groups of friends have continued climbing together for the cause and have raised over $1,0000,000. 100% of all money raised with Climb for Captives campaigns goes directly to Rescue:Freedom so that they can rescue as many as possible.
Each Climb for Captives campaign is an independent fundraiser organized by the participants. Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for you to turn your outdoor adventure into a fundraiser to fight human trafficking. So whether you mobilize a group of friends, you start your own fundraiser or you are already scheduled to do a guided climb, you make a difference by turning your climb into a Climb for Captives Climb!
*Climb for Captives is not a guide service and we do not supervise or participate in the organizing or logistics of your hike or climb. Campaign particants are solely responsible for the planning, organization, costs and execution of your campaign.
