Bonnie is our 2015 Volunteer of the Year and although she volunteers on a lot of adventures, you'll most likely find her on a climbing program. She's an avid climber and competitor (placing Silver in the 2014 National Paraclimbing Championship and traveling to Spain and France for World Championships). She brings a calm and direct presence to every program and she's exactly who you want belaying you through a climb. We love having Bonnie as a part of the team!
