Coastal Virginia Magazine and the Adventure Park at Virginia Aquarium in Virginia Beach are challenging climbers to join our team or sponsor us to raise much needed funds for the Alzheimer’s Association for research and family support. The challenge of our Longest Day will be to have at least one person from the team on a specified course continuously throughout the 16 hour day which will begin at 7 AM on June 16 and end at 11 PM that evening. Participants climb for free but will be required to participate in one 4-hour shift during the day and raise a minimum of $100 in donations. There will be a limit of 100 climbers, so get your group together and sign on today.

Get your friends together today and come climb for a cause.

The Coelacanth
(pronounced SEE-luh-kanth)

is an enormous, bottom-dwelling fish that is unlike other living fishes in a number of ways. They belong to an ancient lineage that has been around for more than 360 million years. Coelacanths can reach more than six feet long and weigh about 200 pounds, and they’re covered in thick, scaly armor. It’s estimated they can live up to 60 years or more.

The coelacanth, was believed to have been extinct since the end of the Cretaceous period. On December 22, 1938, the first living specimen was found off the east coast of South Africa.
