Whistler One Climb is back! Climb the Grouse Grind for a good cause

Whistler One Climb 2015

Are you prepared? Whistler One Climb returns this coming Saturday, June 7! Wear some blue and come to the Grouse Grind to bring clear drinking water to more than 10,000 people in Kenya. All the donations will go to Free The Children to support their ongoing work in the community of Kipsongol.

It will be an amazing day of fun and fresh air so why not register as a team with your friends? If you are one of the hundreds of hikers that will join this effort to raise money to provide clean water, you will be rewarded at the top with an awesome after party full of activities that will power you up!  The climb will open at 8:00 am but you will have to wait until 9:45 am to celebrate it.

Free The Children is an organisation that helps provide communities in need of clean water sources and sanitation facilities. They have already provided clean water to over a million of people. This year, all funds raised will support Free The Children’s project in Kipsongol, Kenya.

Kipsongol is a rural Kenyan village that has a population of more than 1,881, including 700 school-going children. The key challenge for this community is the lack of access to drinking water. None of the households in this community have access to clean water, so they have to travel 15 kilometers daily to retrieve water from a river source – six to eight hours each day-.
