Grind For Kids
Make every Grouse Grind count!
About the Program
Grind For Kids is a program that leverages the enthusiasm of the thousands of people in the Lower Mainland that do the Grouse Grind on a regular basis. People sign up and ask friends, family and co-workers to pledge $1 or more for every Grouse Grind they do between the opening and the end of Grind season. After the Grind closes for the year, participants will share their success with the people who have pledged them and request they fulfill their pledges. One-time donations are also accepted.
Since it's founding, over 28,000 Grouse Grinds have been logged towards BC Children's Hospital Foundation and over $960,000.00 has been raised for BC sick kids. Help us reach our goal of an all-time $1 million raised for BC Children's Hospital Foundation in 2017!
Go solo. Go in a team
Create a Grind for Kids team. Recruit your friends and associates. Challenge yourselves and/or other teams in terms of the number of grinds completed or dollars raised.
Where do the funds go?
Straight to the hearts of BC kids! Funds raised will help build the cardiology unit in the new BC Children’s Hospital.
How do I sign up?
Register online for $20.
Pick up your official Grind Timer Card - track your progress in real time by swiping your timer card at the start and finish of the Grind. Timer Cards also include complimentary bag check.
Then collect pledges for every Grind you complete to help the kids.
Please note the Grouse Grind’s winter seasonal closure is still in effect due to snow buildup and unsafe conditions. Metro Vancouver will update their website as soon as it has re-opened.
Not a Grinder? You Can Still Help!
