We are not asking you to actually climb Mount Logan, simply using its height of 5,959 metres above sea level as our goal. We count your uphill and downhill journeys over a 5.9 km route. Please support Canada's veterans by collecting pledges and participating in this event.
What to expect
Check in at the reception desk in the chalet with your pledge sheet, donations, and waiver between 10am and 2 pm. You will cover a one km route, up and down the park area and Grand River Conservation Authority forest and grassland six times, with a check point by the chalet per loop. (Dress appropriately for a walk in the woods.) Your progress will be tracked on a card issued during registration. Please bring your own water bottle; water will be available in the chalet. As there will be Service Dogs present, please leave your pets at home. Upon request, donations of $20 or more will receive a tax charity receipt from National Service Dogs or Veterans Emergency Transition Services Canada.
Participants may register individually or as a team/family. Any participation is welcome; however, we ask that participants please try to raise $59.59 (a penny a metre) or more. Any individual or team raising $1,500 or more will be given the opportunity to sponsor and name a puppy, receive updates on their success, and attend their graduation.
If you would simply like to show up and participate without registering, you are welcome to do so for a donation of at least $10.
Chicopee Tube Park will have their zip-line ride operating during the fundraising event, provided the weather cooperates with us. Participants of Climb For Veterans may pay $12 each for one ride and $20 for two rides. Minimum size for zip-line rides is 107 cm (42 inches) tall, weight of 22.5kg (50lbs), and at least 4 years of age.
