This year's Climbathon was a blast! "We raised a total of $6000, and had a lot of fun," said junior Lucy Edy. "Since it was the day before Halloween, we had a costume contest!" There was also a raffle, flag decorating (the flags will be strung together and put up in the Mountain Alliance room), food, music with Julia Moretz aka "Jazzy J" as DJ , and games like balloon stomp and corn hole.
Lucy's most memorable moment from the event was getting to climb the tower with fellow junior Emma Gummerson while the song "Defying Gravity" played in the background. "Emma and I won best duo for being Elphaba and Galinda from the musical Wicked (I was Elphaba). The music started when we started climbing, I reached the top, and the song ended right as I hit the ground. It was epic."
The event was run by ASU Program Planning students Chris Moore, Jake Filipkowski, and Drew Mercer. They did an amazing job and the event was a great success! Thank you to everyone who donated time and money to making Climbathon awesome!
