Thousands of people from across the GTA will put their fitness to the test as they race up the world's tallest building in the Canada Life CN Tower Climb for WWF-Canada at the end of this month. This year, money raised will help fight global warming-- the biggest environmental threat to our planet-- so climbers can get fit while helping our planet. The climb isn't as scary as it sounds-- the average climb time of the 1,776 steps is approximately 25 minutes and people of every age and fitness level participate. Last year, ages ranged from five year olds to 85-year-olds! And, with two different events to choose from there really is something for everyone. The most popular day is the Public Climb which happens on Saturday, April 28. More than 5,000 people will tackle the tower this year and prove how much they care about our planet. Bring your family and friends or come alone and set a new personal best time. You'll have fun and get the chance to win some great prizes based on your fundraising efforts. If you are more of a team player, then come to the Team Climb on Thursday, April 26. This is for groups of four and participants must fundraise at least $500 to enter. It's a great opportunity for work colleagues or gym buddies to put themselves and each other to the test and compete for great prizes including fastest team, most fundraising, and many more. As an added bonus, all participants will have the chance to win a trip for two to Cuba supplied by Horizon & Co. Climbers will get an entry for every $100 submitted prior to noon on April 20. Canada's Arctic is warming faster than anywhere else on the planet. Nearly one million square kilometres of ice have already disappeared, posing serious risks for seals, polar bears and entire Arctic communities. So help keep your community and your planet healthy and tackle the tower. For more information visit wwf.ca or call the event hotline at 416-484-7716.
