Grind for Kids

Earlier this year, our team at JCI Vancouver committed to dominating the Grouse Grind for the BC Children’s Hospital.

How? Grind for Kids! An awesome organization that is raising money for sick kids around the province via EXERCISE {or physical death — depending on your stance}.

The process is as easy as 1-2-3!

  1. Register for Grind for Kids and complete the Grouse Grind on a regular basis {2830 stairs, 2,800 feet of vertical gain — oh boy}
  2. Ask friends, family, etc to pledge $1 or more for every Grouse Grind you do between June and October
  3. All proceeds are donated to the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation

Our team aims to do the Grouse Grind once or twice a week. So far I have completed FIVE… many of them sucked but all of them counted! Hey, it’s all about completion right? I have noticed that the Grouse Grind, coupled with running and power yoga has had a lot of impact on my body. The Grouse Grind is a haul — I’ve learned a lot about my breath and it’s definitely helped my training. Lean machine!

Grind for Kids is particularly close to my heart because I was a patient at the BC Children’s Hospital back in the day. To learn more about my journey and support our team fundraising, visit my superhero page!

Interested in joining us for a Grind? AMAZING. We’d love to have you join us. We either head up after work at 5:30pm-ish {and have a beer at the top!} or we head up Sunday morning around 8:30am. Check out our Facebook event or follow @JCIVancouver‘s tweets to stay in the loop!
