Welcome to My Climb the Wall Page!
Help me support the 1 in 5!
In 2014 I climbed the Wall in 17:57. In 2018 I climbed the Wall in 11:42. Will 2020 be the year I climb in under 10 minutes?
When I originally did the Stair Climb 6 years ago, I barely did any kind of workout or fitness activity. My job entails a lot of work at a keyboard and I didn't make time for taking care of myself. That first climb I thought I was going to pass out on the stairs and I vowed never to do it again. The climb sparked a change, despite kicking my butt, and made me consider the kind of shape I was in and what kind of shape I wanted to be in.
It's six years later and I'm still climbing for my dad, an avid smoker for most of his life, but now I'm climbing for me too.
I will be participating in the BC Lung Association's Climb the Wall: the Stairclimb for Clean Air 2020, happening February 23, 2020. At this unique event, participants challenge themselves against the 48 storeys of the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre Hotel (that’s 739 steps) and collect donations in support of the BC Lung Association's efforts and outreach in the lung health community.
I know so many of us have been impacted by lung disease, either personally, or through those we love. I am challenging my lungs for those that simply cannot. The money we raise will support the BC Lung Association's efforts in air quality and tobacco prevention initiatives, patient support programs and lung health medical research. We all breathe the air. The fight belongs to all of us.
Please donate online to my personal fundraising page, provided in the link below. A tax receipt will be issued automatically via email. For more information about Climb the Wall: the Stairclimb for Clean Air please visit www.stairclimb.ca.
