2017 Tech Grind for United Way

2017 Tech Grind for United Way

About This Campaign

Vancouver’s tech sector has found a new way to interface.

Tech Grind takes local tech teams up Grouse Mountain - all 2,830 steps, 2.9 km and 853 meters in elevation – and pits them against other Vancouver companies.

Can you hack it?

Saturday, September 30, 2017
10:00am – 1:00pm
Grouse Mountain
North Vancouver, BC

Donations fuel your team, so be sure to secure your team’s advantage. Reach out to your coworkers, friends and family. Ask in person, Instagram and tweet your #uwtechgrind ask, or email this link to your Tech Grind fundraising page.

Each team is encouraged to raise $500 for United Way. All donations are 100% local and help empower kids, families, and seniors.

Race day activities include yoga, great food, chilled beverages and a chance to mix with other members of the tech community before and after the Grouse Grind®! (During the Grind®, all bets are off). We’ll also make sure you get back down the mountain with a complimentary ride on the Grouse Mountain Gondola.

PLUS - all participants of a team that raises a minimum of $2,000 will receive a VIP gift package presented by IT/IQ that includes SAXX Underwear.
