XIP Training Systems and Northern Physical Therapy have joined forces to create our first annual Springtime Hill Climb! This event will be a team relay where teams of four will spend two hours lapping the Lyndon Outing Club and getting in as many loops as they can before the timer goes off. All proceeds from the event will be donated to NEK Prospers efforts to help benefit Suicide Prevention. Every team will be given a brick that each climber is responsible for carrying with them - this brick represents the weight of mental illness on those who might be suffering and in need of help. With prevention tactics the goal is for every person to be able to relieve this burden and feel supported by the team around them.
Location: Lyndon Outing Club, 1580 Lily Pond Rd, Lyndonville, Vermont 05851
