Recognizing the immediate challenges that the spread of COVID-19 poses in the lives of our community, from health to overall quality of life, CLIMB Hamilton aims to get our community climbing to not just address these concerns, but to overcome them together.
Through your contributions of fundraising and stepping up with us on June 30th, Climb Hamilton will support 8 local organizations in need focused on the total health of our community. As we Climb together, we overcome the challenges that COVID-19 poses in our communities and the strength we have to support everyone in need.
CLIMB Hamilton is an annual athletic event in Hamilton, Ontario that raises funds supporting the total health in the Hamilton community. This year, like many other annual athletic events coast-to-coast, we made the difficult decision to cancel our May 9th event to help flatten the curve and stop the spread of COVID-19 in Canada.
Of course, canceling an in-person event and canceling the spirit of overcoming health challenges in our community are two different things. And whereas the spread of COVID-19 may prevent us from doing our physical event in Hamilton, it inspires us to virtually reach out across our region and virtually Climb bigger, better, and continue to contribute and support those in need, especially during this time.
Even online and practicing social-distancing, we can climb together and we can overcome together.Read More
