The climbing wall in the elementary school of Velké Opatovice
In the begging of the project stands the principal of the school Mgr. Karin Petrželková, who supported the project and took care of the finantial side of it, Mgr. David Ševčík, the so called founding father and Ing. Kateřina Gerbrichová that completed the request for donation. We managed to receive the donation in 2013 from a local company called MAS partnerství venkova and the amount was 210 000 CZK and the money covered 85 % of the costs. The rest of the costs were covered by other local companies and private donators. This amount of money made it possible to build the currentclimbing wall. It’s surface is 65 metres squared. We also bought 16 sit harnesses, 4 chest harnesses, 4 full body harnesses, 12 HMS carabines, 36 expresses, 6 belay polyamide slings, 6 ClickUps with carabines, 6 ropes, 10 helmets and 250 climbing holds. This project was named by MAS Partnerství venkova the most inovative project of the year, that it financed. The climbing for the public and the climbing lessons is shielded by SRPŠ.
The climbing wall is financed from the entry fees the people that climb it pay, and also from the money they pay for borrowing the climbing gear. The biggest cost is the rental of the gym, where the wall is situated. The rest of money is used to buy new equipment and climbing holds. So 100% of the collected money goes to the wall or the rent.
