2018 Tech Grind for United Way

2018 Tech Grind for United Way

About This Campaign

Tech Grind 2018 will take you and your team up Grouse Mountain - all 2,830 steps, 2.9 km and 853 meters - to race and raise as much funds as we can to support United Way and kids in our community!

Can you hack it?

Donations fuel your team and will help you win great prizes so be sure to secure your team’s advantage by signing up. We’re asking each team to raise a minimum of $500 and last year we raised $30,000 in total with many of our top teams including IT IQ, Sierra Systems and Salesforce each raising thousands of dollars just by climbing up the Grind!

All donations are 100% local and help kids in need access vital after school, mentorship and anti-bullying programs supported by United Way.

Race day activities include yoga, great food, chilled beverages and a chance to mix and mingle 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.
