Vancouverites are known for their love of an active lifestyle and the city’s surrounding natural landscapes, so what better way to combine these passions than by raising money for an admirable cause? Imagine this: you, conquering the stairs of one of the city’s most iconic landmarks, all in the name of charity.

The WWF Climb for Nature is making its West Coast debut at BC Place this spring. This annual charity event, hosted on the steps of Toronto’s CN Tower, has traveled across the country this year to bring even more people together in support of conservation.

On Sunday, May 26th, 2024, participants will climb the many steps of BC Place either with a team or flying solo, all in support of WWF and their efforts to reverse wildlife loss and fight the climate crisis.

This fun-for-all-ages event provides an exciting opportunity for Vancouverites to show their support for the cause and challenge themselves while trying something new.

In case you’re not familiar with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), it is Canada’s largest international conservation organization and is dedicated to restoring and protecting habitats for at-risk species in BC and throughout Canada. 

And when you participate in the stair climb for a cause this spring, you’ll be doing so in support of WWF and its efforts to recover wildlife, restore natural habitats and fight climate change.

All funds raised at the event will go towards protecting and restoring the crucial habitats of southern resident killer whales, salmon, Vancouver Island marmots and other at-risk wildlife in BC and throughout Canada.
