WWF's CN Tower Climb for Nature

We are climbing the CN Tower on April 5th to celebrate Raymon's 13th birthday which happens to fall on the day of the climb!  Raymon has been raising money for WWF-Canada each birthday since he turned 9 and decided to make a bigger impact this year with a larger fundraising goal.

With your support we hope to raise $1000.00 to support WWF-Canada and the great work that they do. WWF-Canada helps to protect wildlife and their habitats across Canada.  

**March 4th UPDATE**  Due to the incredible generosity of our family and friends, we managed to reach our original fundraising goal of $1000.00 in 3 days! Since we still have a month until the climb, we are increasing our goal to $2000.00 !  Thanks to everyone for helping us to raise the bar further!

 

**April 12 Update**

Hi Everyone,

Like everyone else learning to be flexible in these unprecedented times, we had to adapt in order to complete our CN Tower Climb in support of WWF this year. When the climb went virtual as a result of COVID-19, we thought a team hike would be a great alternative! Then the Parks, Conservation Areas and the Bruce Trail closed, with everybody being encouraged to stay at home.

Discouraged, but not willing to give up just yet, we found a trail along the Grand River in Cambridge that was still open last Sunday. Apparently, climbing 1,776 steps of the CN Tower roughly equates to a 13km hike, so we walked 13km of the Grand River Trail, while our friends and teammates Jackie and Mark completed their own hike in Toronto - calling us via FaceTime to mark the end of their hike. We were all careful to respect the 2m physical distancing rules to keep ourselves and our communities safe. :)

As a final celebration of Raymon’s 13th Birthday, we had a Zoom call to share some virtual cake with family. (Well, the cake was very real in our house… so it felt a little bit cruel!)

All in all it was a successful day, and we are thrilled to report that with your help, we were able to raise a total of $2081.00 for WWF! A BIG Thanks to all our donors, friends, family and supporters!

 

Thanks for your suppport!
