Climb for Cancer THANK YOU!

On May 13, 2017 over 1,500 participants from approximately 105 teams climbed over 2.5 million stairs at Tim Hortons Field. Together we scaled Mount Everest 44 times. Together we raised over $165,900 for Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre.

That brings the 11 year total to $833,000 raised for cancer patient care here in our own Hamilton Community at Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre.

Thank you to our friends at KX Country for their amazing uplifting hour of country, the Ticats who always bring their “A” game to every climb and to Bruiser of the Hamilton Bulldogs who made a wonderful addition to our front line – the cheering squad! Thank you to our many sponsors who help to run the event and keep every dollar raised going to cancer care.

We, your Climb Team, cannot even begin to word our thanks to all our long-time loyal and our newly-broken in participants and volunteers who make Climb for Cancer what it is, and what it has become. Without you – we could not move mountains. Together, we have become a real movement of change for those who need us. Thank you for climbing this mountain with us.

We hope you will continue to follow us on Twitter and Facebook while we tally up the final numbers and keep you all moving all year ‘round.

Looking forward to seeing you at Tim Hortons Field next year on Saturday May 12, 2018!
