When you Climb for Wilderness (C4W), all funds raised go directly towards the  Alberta Wilderness Association (AWA). Our focus is on advocating for Alberta's wild spaces and the wildlife that rely on them. With a committed staff of conservation specialists, volunteers, and board members, we rely on people like you to help protect some of our most treasured spaces and creatures.
