Girls Education International to be at Boulder Adventure Film Fest this weekend

Hey all, Heidi and I will be at Boulder Adventure Film this Saturday all day to answer any and ally questions people might have about Girls Education International. We hope to see you there! Adventure Film has been incredibly supportive of Girls Ed. They brought a variety of films to our Beats for Books events, and they've made us one of their featured nonprofits. We'd love to support them in turn! This is one of the shows that is especially appealing to me:

"FAMILY/KIDS SHOW"- fun for the whole family!
Join rock climbing Legend and mother, Lynn Hill as she introduces and presents this fantastic climbing film and shares with the audience some inspiration on climbing, life and family.

Wall Rats- 60 min
Directed by Steve Edwards

Tori Allen, 13, and Scott Cory, 11, are sport climbers who've excelled at international competitions. Speed climber Hans Florine thinks that their small stature might allow them, as a team, to make the second free ascent of the Nose, a famous route shooting straight up Yosemite Valley's El Capitan. Neither of the kids have much outdoor climbing experience or have ever been more than 100' off the ground. How they'll respond to a multi-day adventure up a 3,000 foot wall is anybody's guess, not to mention... no one that young has ever climbed El Capitan! With very little planning, they embark on a 5-day adventure into history.

See you this weekend!
