Vertical Climb - Up & Down for Good Health

WINDSOR - The Annual Europro VERTICAL CLIMB takes place on Sunday, January 15, 2017 at the FCA Chrysler Facility, downtown starting at 10:00 a.m.

The Windsor Regional Hospital Foundation and Title Sponsor, Greg Monforton & Partners Injury Lawyers are pleased to bring this fundraising event forward once again where individuals and teams can climb the steps of the 13 floors at One Riverside Drive East. 

The proceeds from Europro Vertical Climb support the Neurosciences Program at Windsor Regional Hospital which provides care for complex spine injuries for trauma, cancer and degenerative diseases.  Part of the Level 1 Trauma Services at the Ouellette Campus, patients are treated for brain injuries and strokes.  “As a surgeon, I felt I had to get my own health in order and that is why I support and take part in the vertical climb,” stated Dr. Dante Morassutti, Neurosurgeon.

Run/Walk climb times are:
10:00 am Competitive individual climbers

10:15 am Regular individual climbers

11:30 am / 12:30 pm Winners announced

 

2:00 pm Competitive team climbers

2:15 pm Regular team climbers

3:30 pm / 4:30 pm Winners announced

 

If one really wanted to challenge themselves, walking the stairs for 7 rounds is equal to completing the CN Tower walk.  If one completes 12 rounds, it is equal to climbing the stairs of Debai’s Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world!
