Julia Chen Passes On

Our beloved Julia Chen passed away from injuries sustained in a climbing/abseil accident earlier this month (click to read the unofficial accident report). We are raising funds to help her family pay for the medical bills (R125,000).

If you’d like to donate, we have set up a donations page on the Bloc 11 website – click the black banner at the top of the homepage bloc11.co.za and follow the prompts.
The gym will cover all associated banking/transactions fees so that the entire donated amount will go to Julia’s family.  You can also email us directly if you’d prefer to do an EFT.

Thank you so so much to everyone that has contributed so far, it’s a tremendous help in this difficult time.

    This is sad news indeed. How and where did this occur?

    Very briefly and broadly:
    The accident occurred at Paarl Rock. Julia was abseiling when she seemingly lost control and sustained a injuries to the head.

    I’m busy formulating a more detailed response and will post it up in due course.
