“The Freedom Climb North County: San Dieguito River Park” is a symbolic gesture of the climb to freedom for many women and children around the world. We invite people of all ages and stages, infants to those who’ve lived a long life, the opportunity to get on their feet and participate in raising funds and awareness for women and children who are at the highest risk of exploitation.
