On October 2, all STAIRtoCARE participants will come together for a group stretch session before hitting the stairs to work up a sweat.  As we welcome climbers of all ages and abilities, our registration process is designed to get you climbing at the pace that's perfect for you! 


STEP 1: Find your division.

Step up as an adult (19 years of age and older), child/youth, or First Responder (proud member of the fire, police or emergency medical services). Don't worry - all divisions can tackle the stairs together!


STEP 2: Decide who's climbing by your side

Both climbing and fundraising are easier – and more fun – when we do it together. Once you've completed your individual registration, there are three ways to team up at STAIRtoCARE 2016:

1. Climb with our Team Breathe Captains and tackle the steps with your favourite Tiger-Cats heroes

2. Challenge your colleagues, and register as a workplace team 

3. Take it one little step at a time – and enjoy our all ages on-field activities - when you register as a family team 


STEP 3: Pick your pace

You have the choice of a Competitive (timed) or Non-Competitive (at your own pace) climb:  

  • Competitive: Compete for the fastest time climbing the 80 steps to the top of the stadium’s upper bowl. 
  • Non-Competitive: Set your own goal as you climb the stadium’s lower bowl. Please, no running up or down in this category. 


STEP 4: Up the ante

First Fesponders are invited to take on an extra challenge by climbing in full gear!

STEP 5: Inspire others

Collect pledges from your inner circle. Your friends, family members and colleagues can even sponsor you directly online.

STEP 5: Climb!

Arrive on October 2 ready to take the stairs – then catch your breath and celebrate your victory at our exclusive post-climb tailgate party.
