Together they climbed

The inaugural Everest Challenge, in support of Collingwood General and Marine Hospital, was an exciting one-day event that took place on October 13th, at the Village at Blue Mountain. Over 600 participants of all ages came together to complete the incredible challenge of climbing 29,092 feet, the height of Mount Everest. Teams of 2, 4, 5, 8, or 10 registered to participate in the event, with teams of 2 climbing the mountain together 20 times, teams of 4 climbing 10 times, and teams of 8 climbing 5 times, etc. Thank you to all of the amazing participants, sponsors, organizers and volunteers whose combined efforts resulted in approximately $350k of fundraising, making the first Everest Challenge a great success!
