On Septmeber 29, 2014, Liz Daley died while following her dreams in Argentinian Patagonia when an avalanche took her life.
Daley, a mountain guide and professional splitboarder who grew up in Tacoma and attended Western Washington University in Bellingham, touched many lives. Now, the Liz Rocks Campaign is promoting the outdoors in her honor. On October 1, the group is holding a fundraiser with the goal of building a climbing wall at Point Defiance Park in Tacoma.
Liz Rocks has raised $80,000 so far and it’s on track to reach its goal of $150,000 and break ground on the climbing wall 2017. The group’s executive director, Krystal Edwards, said the impact Liz had is what allows the group to be so successful at raising money.
The fundraiser starts at 6:30 p.m. and includes live and silent auctions, food, drinks, games and prizes. It’s at 705 Dock Street, in Tacoma. Buy tickets or learn more at www.lizrocks.com.
