Get ready for the Virtual CN Tower Climb on Saturday, April 4, and Sunday, April 5. The funds you raise support our vital conservation work, from protecting caribou nurseries in the Arctic and preventing ship collisions with orcas in the Pacific to using nature itself to fight the ever-growing climate crisis across our country.

Virtual Climb Ideas

Here are a few ideas for your virtual climb challenge. Instead of climbing the CN Tower’s 1,776 steps or 144 flights, choose an activity below or get creative and come up with your own.*

  • Climb 1,776 steps in your home
  • Walk, run or bike 17,760 steps
  • Complete 144 squats, burpees, jumping jacks, or lunges
  • Host a virtual dance-a-thon, yoga-a-thon or anything-a-thon
  • Create your own awesome challenge idea

Team Challenge Ideas

Just because you aren’t participating together physically doesn’t mean you can’t still have fun as a group!* Challenge your family members, friends and co-workers to do the virtual climb with you. Set a fundraising goal together and organize fun challenges to reach your goal.

  • Complete 1,776 squats, lunges, jumping jacks, push ups, burpees collectively. Each member can take on a portion of the overall goal.
  • Host your own virtual step class or workout class and invite your friends to join you online. Use an online video conferencing system like Skype, Google Hangouts or (with permission) your workplace’s video conferencing platform.
  • Host an online dance-a-thon, yoga-a-thon, or an anything-a-thon. Pick a date and time, and work up a sweat for nature
  • Host a competition on April 4 or 5 to see who can do their individual action the fastest.
  • For larger teams, host a climb relay: Divide yourselves into teams of four. Compete against each other in a virtual climb relay race to complete the following activities:
    • 144 squats
    • 144 jumping jacks
    • 144 lunges
    • 144 burpees

Remember to share a photo of you conquering your challenge or your results on your fitness tracker with the hashtag #VirtualCNTowerClimb.

How to submit funds

The easiest way to collect funds is to ask supporters to donate online using your personal or team fundraising page. Find your page here.

You can also have your donors drop funds off in your mailbox while you are social distancing. Once you have your cash and cheques in hand, you have two options:

  1. The donor can write the cheque in your name and you can enter the donation on your credit card under their name. These same steps can be done for cash donations. Please note: For this option, you will need their full name, full address, email address and phone number. This will then appear in the thermometer on your profile. The donor will be emailed a tax receipt automatically.
  2. The donor can write the cheque to WWF-Canada and you can mail this in with a pledge form to Attn: CN Tower Climb, WWF-Canada, 400-410 Adelaide St. West, Toronto, M5V 1S8.
