On Saturday, November 24 your small steps can make a huge difference for local communities. Join us at UP 2018 as we climb 1,776 steps to the top of the CN Tower and help communities rise from poverty to possibility.

United Way supports organizations like North York Community House - helping us provide much needed services to newcomers, refugees, and low income communities. All funds raised through the CN Tower Climb will go to United Way.

Registration fees: 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 this registration fee, as prescribed by the Canada Revenue Agency.)

Minimum-fundraising requirements: To be eligible to climb, each participant must raise and submit the following fundraising minimums by your event day: $50 for elementary/high-school students$75 for post-secondary students, and $100 for all other climbers. As always, 100% of funds raised will go directly to United Way’s ongoing work in fighting poverty across our region.
