SPINE CLIMB FUNDRAISER – REGISTER TODAY |Sept 24th

Posted 2 months ago on

#RISEUP and take the challenge to join us at McHugh Bluff stairs Sept 24th for the 2nd ANNUAL SPINE CLIMB FUNDRAISER!

The Spine Climb is in support of World Spine Care – an innovative organization that works to provide high-level musculoskeletal care to people with limited access to health care in developing countries. In many of these countries if people can’t work, even due to medical reasons, they are left destitute and unable to provide for themselves or their families. Let’s help them stay strong, healthy, and able to work.   All proceeds of the event will go to World Spine Care help so your registration fee will make a difference in lives of individuals living with debilitating neck and back pain in underdeveloped countries..

People of all ages and athletic ability are welcome to register. The event will feature two participation options including a Fun Climb and the Endurance Climb which is a competition for the most set of stairs completed during the event. There is also a great family rate. Last year we had babies and backpacks and kids as young as 2 years old participating.

The day will be filled with entertainment and prizes from event sponsors and hosts.

Date: Sunday, September 24, 2017
Time: 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Location: McHugh Bluff Stairs (Calgary, AB) on the outdoor stairs and pathway
Transportation: Parking is available in the public parking lot on site. We will also have a bike rack available for those who chose bike.
