Photo Recap of Skimble & Rock Health’s Climb & Dine Fest

Just another day in the life of a health startup.  Team Skimble recently took our Rock Health family out for a rock climbing & dining fest.  Here are the photos of our willing participants:

but could this stressful, team BrainBot?

Not at all! Let’s climb…

Leslie does knots…then ends up sending a 5.10b for her first time! (you get the night’s MIP 🙂

Afterward, everyone rocked the organic/vegan dinner created by chief Velvet Valentine – yum!

Thanks everyone for being a good sport about learning our favorite sport 😉

Skimble gets with the Rock Health accelerator program to help you mobilize your fitness this summer!

Team Skimble is rocking out today!  We’re thrilled to announce that we will be as part of the inaugural Rock Health program this summer in San Francisco.

Our mission is to enable and empower an entrepreneurial cure for the relative lack of innovation in the health sector. The world of patient care and healthy living is foreign to the technological creativity found in social media, games and other verticals. Rock Health directly targets the gap between these ecosystems, enabling high-impact innovation. – Halle Tecco, Managing Director of Rock Health

We’ve been fortunate to grow organically thus far and lead with top free Healthcare & Fitness apps.  We’re pysched to continue to spread our active wings with the support and encouragement of the health and fitness community at large!

Skimble™ Trademark Cupcakes: celebrating startup friends, National Earth & Dance Weeks!

There was a lot to celebrate at the housewarming, what with Earth Week (April 17th-25th) & Dance Week (April 23rd-May 2nd) happening back to back *and* our coincidental Skimble™ trademark approval papers arriving in the mail that day!

We first kicked things off by baking Skimble™ cupcakes in our traditional ‘creative’ style. We modified this excellent red velvet cupcake with cinnamon cream cheese frosting recipe into a meaningful creation of purple/choco cupcake (passion) with green frosting (earth) and blue sprinkles (groovy!):

Cupcakes were enjoyed in our urban garden, complete with massive succulents and lots of sun:

We danced off the sweet treats with fellow Skimblers:

Here’s our certified trademark approval document:

This will go down in Skimble™ history. Thanks to all our friends and community of Skimblers for their support and encouragement along our early way!
