Who?

Anyone who cares about Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) veterans is welcome to participate.

What?

A roughly 6 km walk or run, up and downhill fundraiser, rain or shine - a great healthy family event.

Where?

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

When?

Father's Day, Sunday 16 June 2019. 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?

Register and 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 16 June.

What to expect

Check in at the registration 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 woodland) six times, with two check points per loop. Your progress will be tracked on a card issued during registration, worn on a participant lanyard. 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. A dime a metre is encouraged. 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, but you will probably not receive the participant lanyard.

Chicopee Tube Park will have their zip-line ride and other attractions operating during and after the fundraising event. All participants of Climb For Veterans will receive a discount for the attractions!
