A non-refundable registration fee applies: $10 for students and $20 for adults. While assisting with event planning, this fee will ensure that United Way Greater Toronto minimizes the potential loss of donated funds. (Note: a tax receipt cannot be issued for the registration fee, as prescribed by the Canada Revenue Agency.)

Minimum-fundraising requirements

To be eligible, each climber must raise and submit the following fundraising minimums: $50 for elementary/high-school students, and $75 for post-secondary students; $100 for adults. As always, 100% of funds raised will go directly to United Way’s ongoing work in fighting poverty across our region.
