Grouse Grind: Grind For Kids
Grind For Kids is a new event that leverages the enthusiasm of the thousands of people in the Lower Mainland that do the Grouse Grind™ on a regular basis. People sign up and ask friends, family and co-workers pledge $1 or more for every Grouse Grind they do between June and October. At the end of the season participants will share their success with the people who have pledged them and request they fulfill their pledges.
How It Works
With your $20 registration fee, you will get an official Grind For Kids Timer Card at Grouse Mountain Guest Services. Simply swipe the timer at the base of the Grind before you start and at the top when you finish. You will be able to go to your personal donation page to track your progress at any time!
Enjoy complimentary bag-check service, which means your bag will be waiting for you at the top when you finish the Grind!
You will also be eligible for weekly prizes. The more Grinds you do, the better your odds of winning!
Raise $1000 or more and you’ll receive a limited edition Grind for kids Merrell shirt.
Help raise a mountain of money for BC Children’s Hospital!
About the Grouse Grind™
The Grouse Grind™ is a 2.9-kilometre trail with 2,800 feet of vertical gain up the face of Grouse Mountain. It is commonly referred to by Vancouverites as “Mother Nature’s Stairmaster”. Over 100,000 Grinds were completed last year.
About BC Children’s Hospital
Funds raised through Grind for Kids help meet urgent needs at BC Children’s Hospital, including clinical care, research into prevention, treatments and cures for childhood diseases, community child-health programs, and equipment purchases. BC Children’s Hospital is the province’s only full-service acute care hospital and it serves approximately one million children living in BC and the Yukon. All children who are seriously ill or injured are referred to Children’s Hospital and are treated at the hospital facility in Vancouver or, with consultation from Children’s specialists, in their home community. Last year, more than 78,000 children were treated at Children’s Hospital.
