A climb up one of Colorado’s 14,000-foot mountains that started as a team-building event for a handful of MegaPath Corp. employees in 2005 has grown into an annual event to raise money for two children’s health charity organizations.
The following year, the 125-employee company, then known as IP5280, created “Climbing For Kids,” and employee-climbers started finding sponsors for their annual trek up one of Colorado’s many peaks. This year, the event attracted 175 climbers—including nonemployees—and raised $45,000 for Children’s Hospital Colorado and the Kempe Center for the Prevention and Treatment of Child Abuse and Neglect.
Pleasanton, Calif.-based MegaPath is a provider of managed data, voice, security and hosted IT services.
