Successful Event at McMaster U!

By April 11, 2013

The OAC was represented at a recent event at McMaster University featuring Red Bull Athlete Will Gadd. The event, sponsored by Red Bull, saw world-renowned climber and adventure athlete Will Gadd present an overview of his lifetime of ‘rad’ accomplishments and adrenaline-infused feats. Will shared insight into his various philosophies regarding risk, goal-setting and living an active, motivated life. OAC Outreach Ambassador Patrick Lam presented to a crowd of approximately 80 keen listeners prior to Will’s slideshow and talk, and outlined the OAC’s history, successes and the many opportunities for the climbing public to get involved. OAC Public Outreach Coordinator Josh Smith answered questions following the talk and signed up new members, including Will himself! With his $50 donation and a grin, Will affirmed the importance of sustainable, cooperative access work; he is proud to be a member of the OAC and we are proud to add him to our member list. Special thanks to Will Gadd, Marla Henderson (Red Bull Canada), and Max Robertson (McMaster Climbing Club) for allowing the OAC to present at this energizing event!
