Star-studded TD StairClimb takes place Nov. 3

A star-studded cast of teams has signed up to step up for an in-person remake of a perennial classic: the TD StairClimb for United Way Elgin Middlesex.

Scheduled to run from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 3, the fundraiser will take place at Budweiser Gardens for the first time. It’s not too late to register and gather pledges, either as part of a team or as an individual.

Participants will have the opportunity to be the stars of this movie-themed event, complete with popcorn, costumes and film décor throughout London’s premier entertainment facility. 

The new venue provides participants with more steps, more fun and more opportunities to reconnect safely with colleagues, friends and classmates. 

More steps, more fun

In this fully accessible venue, participants can climb the 480 stairs of Budweiser Gardens (One London Place, by comparison, was a climb of 472 steps). Or, they can walk or wheel their way around the rink at ice level.

One-way directional routes and signage will ensure safe physical distancing.

Event day will be packed full, with an activity zone, photo booths and more movie props than a Hollywood soundstage.

Warm-ups will be led by the energetic crew of FitClub BootCamps.

The minimum $25 registration fee also includes swag bags, refreshments and snacks.

Team-builder with a purpose

This is the 26th year for StairClimb, and a return in-person after two years as a virtual event.

Each year, teams challenge themselves and each other to raise pledges and wear costumes reflecting the theme of the day.

TD StairClimb is an ideal team-builder with a purpose: a perennially fun fundraiser that supports United Way’s goal to support programs and services that help give everyone a fair shot at a good life.

More than 2,000 people – including dozens of workplace and high-school teams – have participated in previous years and have collectively raised more than $3 million.

#ReUniting the community

The annual TD StairClimb and other campaign events help United Way Elgin Middlesex support 52 essential programs and seven pilot projects at 41 local agencies – each focused on reducing and preventing poverty and promoting social and economic inclusion for all.

This year’s campaign theme of a community #ReUnited places a spotlight on the important of reconnecting after more than two years apart.

It also highlights how everyone has the potential to need help sometimes, and everyone has the potential to give help too.

All money raised through United Way Elgin Middlesex stays 100% local.
