Vertical Climb UP & DOWN for Good Health

WINDSOR – The annual EUROPRO VERTICAL CLIMB WINDSOR takes place on Sunday, January 21, 2018 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 West.

 

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. “Vertical Climb is an event that is fun for the average person and also competitive for those who want to push their limits.  I am looking forward to some friendly competition from our participants including members of the Windsor Police Services,” stated Richard Vennettilli, President of the WRH Foundation.

 

Run/Walk climb times are:

 

10:00 am: TOWER RACE CLIMBERS

10:15 am: INDIVIDUAL VERTICAL CLIMBERS

11:30 am / 12:30 pm: Winners announced

 

2:00 pm: TEAM VERTICAL CLIMB

3:30 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 Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world!
