Race Information

Climb for Alzheimer’s is a fun and exhilarating team-based event that raises funds and awareness for the Alzheimer Society of B.C. at Grouse Mountain. You can participate in the Climb for Alzheimer’s in either of two ways:

Do the Grouse Grind® or, the Summit Stroll

The Summit Stroll is inclusive of seniors, families and those with health or mobility issues who may experience barriers in going up the Grouse Grind®. If you’re on the Stroll, you can walk the trails and visit any of the exhibits and habitats at the Peak of Vancouver.

For 2020, the Climb for Alzheimer’s will be taking place in a virtual capacity across British Columbia between July 21 and September 21, 2020. For the first time, you can choose your Climb! From Mount Douglas in Victoria to the Summit Peak Trail in Fort Nelson or the legendary Grouse Grind® in North Vancouver: the list of hikes that you can tackle to help reach our collective goal of 70,000 kilometres is endless. No matter whether your hike is up a mountain, up a hill, around a lake, or to see a point of interest in your community, by registering and fundraising you are helping people affected by dementia across B.C.
