North Shore Association for the mentally Handicapped Mountain Climbers FOR MOUNT Kilimanjaro

Sep 15, 2005

By Catherine Barr


West Van's Steamworks pub and restaurant played host earlier this month to a special group with some very lofty goals. The NSAMH (North Shore Association for the Mentally Handicapped) held their fundraiser pub night in the banquet room to raise money for the Climb for Community Living - Mt. Kilimanjaro 2006. A group of 45 BC climbers (16 of them with intellectual disabilities) will attempt the climb "to raise awareness for inidividuals with disabilities and to promote inclusion of the disabled in the community."

Vancouver's best events and celebrity functions are all archived here. Vancouver pubs, clubs, nightclubs, gala events and fundraisers are included. Thanks for viewing.

Due to server capacity, you will not be able to access or click through to the larger photographs. With over 250,000 unique visits each month, our site would quickly exceed the amount of memory needed.

If you would like to receive a copy of a photograph, then please send an email and enclose the details of the event, the date, the name, the photo number and the names of the people in the photograph. Also, for security reasons, I prefer not to email copies of pictures to anyone other than the people who are actually in the photo. Thanks.
