Now in its second year, Whistler Water One Climb challenges hundreds of people to dress in blue and “flood” the Grouse Grind all in an effort to provide clean drinking water to a very deserving community in Kenya. Participants gain entry by fundraising $20.00 or more with 100 percent of proceeds directed to Free The Children's water project in the Kenyan community of Kipsongol. To put it in perspective, just $25.00 provides a lifetime of clean drinking water to one person.
Kicking off the festivities, local singer Victoria Duffield and her backup dancers will perform at the base of the Grind followed by inspiring speeches from Free The Children’s Spencer West and Hannah Alper who will be on-hand to share their experiences. Following their ascent of the Grind, participants will be rewarded with a carnival-style mountaintop celebration on the Alpine Plaza.
With just over a week to go until the big day, individuals and teams are encouraged to register or donate to Whistler Water One Climb here.
“We are extremely excited to host our second-annual Whistler Water One Climb on the iconic Grouse Grind trail on June 14th” said Whistler Water president Stuart McLaughlin. "We live in a world of abundance and are fortunate to be able to give back to others. The kids exerting themselves for the benefit of others are inspirational. We are proud of our community."
