NARSA Challenges Raise $8,000
Thu 9th June 2016
Well done to everyone involved in the NARSA charity challenges in Vancouver which raised an amazing $8,000 for the Foundation! Supporters attending the convention this year took part in the tough Grouse Grind hike and completed the Capilano Suspension Bridge challenge, raising vital funds for the work of the Foundation and its charity partners.
The Grouse Grind saw our hikers climb to more than 850 metres in just 3km (including 2830 stairs!) and reach an altitude of 1,200m at the top where stunning views from the peak and a cold beer in the Grouse Mountain Chalet were waiting for them.
Fans tackling the Capilano Bridge challenge, one of the world’s longest and highest suspension bridges, tested their nerves on the ‘cliff walk’ to the bridge, the heart-stopping journey across the suspension bridge itself and the final journey through the West Coast Rainforest over ‘Tree Top Adventure’ walkways.
A special thank you goes to Foundation volunteer Karen Watson, who organised both challenges and has previously arranged highly successful NARSA challenges in Toronto and Los Angeles.
Well done and thank you to all the participants and everyone who sponsored them!
