The details

Who?

Anyone who cares about Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) veterans is welcome to participate. Anyone who feels the climb is too much is welcome as spectators.

What?

A roughly 6 km walk, up and downhill fundraiser, through forest and grassland, rain or shine - a great healthy family event. Dress for the weather.

Where?

Chicopee Tube Park, 1600 River Road, Kitchener. The zip-lines, rope climbs, and tube slides will be open, weather dependant. Loads of fun!

When?

TBD 2020. You can start anytime between 10 am to 2 pm, the fundraiser ends at 4 pm.

Why?

To raise funds for CAF veteran projects in Wellington County and Waterloo Region: Service Dogs and commemoration.

How?

Print the waiver and pledge sheet, canvas family and friends to support your efforts, then come to Chicopee Tube Park between 10 am and 2 pm on TBD.

What to expect

Check in at the reception desk in the chalet with your pledge sheet, donations, and waiver. You will cover a one km route, up and down the park area and Grand River Conservation Authority forest and grassland six times, with two check points 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. 

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 and other attractions operating during the fundraising event, provided the weather cooperates with us. Participants of Climb For Veterans may pay $15 each and receive two hours all access and two zip-line rides! (Minimum weight for zip-line 22.5kg/50lbs and at least 4 years of age.)
