50 Grouse Grinds for Kids
This year the Grouse Grind opened surprisingly early. Climbing up this North Vancouver landmark is something that I look forward to every year. Last year I honoured one of Lifemoves clients who passed away, but also enjoyed the mountain’s physical challenge, by reaching my 100th ascent.
In 2012, I am again striving to raise money for the B.C. Children’s Hospital by participating in Grind for Kids. This charity program is close to my heart because I needed the children’s hospital in Ontario and Saskatchewan when I was very young for basic survival and have had two surgeries in the B.C. Children’s Hospital.
In British Columbia and Vancouver, we are blessed to live in such a beautiful area that it is important to give kids the opportunity to enjoy it. This year the funds for Grind for Kids go towards the cardiology area of the new B.C. Children’s Hospital. This is appropriate because of how challenging this climb is on the cardiovascular system.
Please assist me in raising $1,000 between June and October. You can pledge $1 for every climb, my goal is 50 Grinds, or a specific amount. Pledges over $20 receive a tax receipt.
How about you double your pledge for every Grind I complete in under 40 minutes, by pledging $2 for these? I am trying to finish 25 Grinds at this pace; so far I am at 3!

Thank you, very much.
