(North Vancouver) A beautiful summer day greeted participants at Grouse Mountain’s annual Seek the Peak, with its awe-inspiring 1,250-metre climb from West Vancouver’s Ambleside Park to the Peak of Vancouver.
Now in its 14th year, the event saw participants take on the 16-kilometre course alone or as part of a relay team, with every step upwards raising valuable funds for the BC Cancer Foundation’s lifesaving work in the fight against breast cancer.
This year’s Seek the Peak title goes to Braden Lively with a time of 1:31:06 followed by Brooke Spence as the first female finisher with a time of 1:43:58. Taking top honours in the relay category is Dignum's Warriors who clocked in at 1:23:31. For a complete list of official race times, please click here
“We are so thankful to all the participants who took part in making this year’s Seek the Peak another great success,” said Chelsea Carswell, Grouse Mountain’s Event Manager. “Your dedication and commitment are making a valuable impact in the community by supporting the lifesaving work of the BC Cancer Foundation.”
Including the almost $33,000 raised during this year’s event, Seek the Peak has now contributed over $433,000 to directly support research conducted by the BC Cancer Agency. This year’s top fundraiser Stacey Anderson raised $10,650.
“The BC Cancer Foundation is incredibly grateful for the participants and Grouse Mountain in their support of this wonderful event,” said Jan New, Associate Vice President, Development, at the BC Cancer Foundation. “The funds raised for cancer research are making a meaningful impact for patients and families in B.C. and beyond.”
