Klime will also be working side by side with the employees of PRG to design some killer tees for their members, as well as ironing out the details for a sponsorship program for the PRG team and its coaches. Make sure to support your local gym by picking up not just one of these shirts when they hit the shelves, but 2 more for backup. Climbing is a dirty sport by nature, and one must always be prepared.

In the Light Fund
Paige Bain

Klime will also be joining forces with the In The Light Fund to help raise money and awareness for a great cause. In The Light Fund (ITL) is a non-profit organization that was founded by Paige Bain and a couple of her friends. The money raised by ITL is split up amongst three categories; 85% of the money goes to homecare and financial support for childhood cancer victims, 10% to gifts for children with cancer, and 5% set aside for expenses. The inspiration was given by a girl named Missy who suffered with cancer; she passed away at age 19 on April 26, 2003. In August of that year, the fundraiser was started. In The Light Fund has done a variety of different fundraising events. They have had several concerts and many candy sales. ITL also sells t-shirts, bracelets, and bumper sticks. ITL now runs an annual climbing event at one PRG Climbing Centers, “Climb for the Kids,” which brings in over $6000 a year. The fourth annual “Climb for the Kids” was held on September 27th. In total, In The Light Fund has raised over $24,000 in proceeds since August 2003.

We like to think of Klime Clothing as more than threads covering skin. It is clothing with an intended purpose - the hope and realization that each and every person can make a difference. We are psyched to have been given this opportunity to work with ITL, and hope that our contributions and efforts will make a difference for others.

We are always looking for new opportunities to get involved with the community and charitable organizations. Please pass along any ideas, events, or contacts that you may feel Klime may be interested in, or more-so, that would be interested in having Klime get involved.
