WWF’s CN TOWER CLIMB FOR NATURE

Climbing the Cn Tower is a rare and exhilarating opportunity to take 1,776 meaningful steps towards a future where nature and wildlife thrive.

I’m committed to climbing the CN Tower this April 7th to support WWF-Canada. I am totally up for the physical and fundraising challenge!
While I am doing my part, I am counting on you to help me reach my fundraising goal. The funds I raise with the help of your generous support will make a huge difference for WWF’s efforts to safeguard the habitats of hundreds of species and make ground-breaking progress towards habitat sustainability.

help me achieve my fundraising goal and make a donation today.  Just click on the link below:
 If you come to my show on Saturday at the 120 diner I may be singing in a wheel chair after the climb
