In partnership with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats are a Canadian Football League team with a storied 147-year history and 15 Grey Cup Championships. Playing their home games at the brand-new, state of the art Tim Hortons Field, the Tiger-Cats have sold out every game since the stadium opened its doors in 2014. Led by head coach Kent Austin, the Ticats have competed in two of the last three Grey Cup games and have won two East Final divisional titles in three years.

“The Tiger-Cats are excited to be partnering with the Ontario Lung Association again this year for the second-annual STAIRtoCARE climb at Tim Hortons Field. The STAIRtoCARE event is a fantastic, community-based fundraising initiative that we fully support - from our staff participating in the climb, to our players actively involved in the promotion of the day. We’re happy to do our part in helping raise awareness for the importance of breathing and lung health."
