The Cause

The Climb of Hope Run benefits the Cross Cancer Institute’s vision of a cancer-free future. This unique and spirited event sets itself apart by combining a 5km run or 3.5km walk with stair-climbing and rock ‘n’ roll music to keep you movin’ and groovin’ for an excellent cause!

The Climb of Hope invites all ages, all athletic levels and all inner rockstars to put on their best big hair, add some eyeliner and rock out to knock out cancer!
