ClimbUP for United Way

Challenge dates: September 23 – October 2, 2021

GenNext is challenging you to get outside and connect with your community by registering for this year’s ClimbUP for United Way. Explore local neighbourhoods while fundraising for them this fall. All you need to achieve is 42,000 steps over 10 days – that’s a minimum of 4,200 steps a day – to show your local love for your community.

Last year, over 42,000 people in 40 neighbourhoods across the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley were supported by United Way. With your help, we can support even more people in need this year.

We’ve made it easy to track your steps by introducing new tech. Plus, we’ve brought on new sponsors that will make hitting your fundraising and step goals even more rewarding.

Register your own team with co-workers, friends or family or connect with other like-minded individuals by joining our GenNext team: No Zoom Fatigue Here
