Just over 10 years ago, a group of Power To Be supporters, and our founder, set off on an expedition to summit Mount Kilimanjaro to raise funds and awareness for our mission of removing barriers and creating access to nature.
In 2020, to celebrate the anniversary of this expedition, supporters virtually summited Kilimanjaro.
In 2021 we conquered North America's highest peak - Mt. Denali
In 2022 we tackle the biggest climb of all - Mt. Everest!
Over the course of 3 days (May 27-29), teams will work together to cumulatively complete the elevation of Mt. Everest. We are being kind to our racers by starting our elevation gain at Lakla airport - making your trek to the Summit 5988 meters. Raise $1000 before race start and you are heli'd in to Namche Bazaar - taking your climb to 5408 meters!
Racers can gain elevation anywhere. Climb the stairs in your house, a hiking trail, an inclined street or hill in your neighbourhood… as long as you are respecting the federal and provincial guidelines regarding physical distancing and other preventative measures surrounding COVID-19. In the spirit of Power To Be, racers can expect a little challenge and of course some fun along the way, with Best Dressed, Team Spirit and Social Media Challenges throughout the journey. By the end of the event, teams can be proud of having worked together to virtually summit a peak for a great cause.
- Race Start – Friday, May 27th – 12 pm (noon)
- Race cut-off for Elevation & Time – Sunday, May 29th – 4pm
