“Breast Cancer is non-discriminatory. We all know someone who has been affected by breast cancer. That is why Grouse Mountain created Seek The Peak”, explains Grouse Mountain General Manager, Michael Cameron. “This is an incredibly fun event and also the ultimate fitness challenge. Participants know that nothing is more grueling than what cancer patients endure during their fight against the disease and this helps propel individuals up the Mountain on race day”.
Seek The Peak is a unique, pledge-driven relay event that has raised over $200,000 for Rethink Breast Cancer. All funds go directly to BC- based researchers who are working towards the goal of finding a cure for breast cancer, and to the start up costs for valuable support programs. Registration is available from now until race day, don’t miss your opportunity to Seek The Peak and fight breast cancer one vertical step at a time.
