Both our local Grouse Grind peak and the world-famous Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa will be pursued by British Columbians on Sept. 29 to support over 70,000 families impacted by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias in B.C. and research for a cure.
While teams of British Columbians take on the Mt. Kilimanjaro Grouse Grind for Alzheimer’s (MKGG) challenge at Grouse Mountain on Sept. 29, a separate team of hikers will also be making their way up Mt. Kilimanjaro, a 19,340-foot quest that takes place over a week. Seven times up the Grouse Grind is equivalent to reaching the highest peak in Africa and with a MKGG team of seven, that’s one Grouse Grind per hiker!
Registration is still open for the MKGG! Sign up at hikemkgg.com
