Have you ever wanted to climb the CN Tower? Do you have an aptitude for altitude? If so, this is the opportunity for you to prove yourself, represent York University, support your city and have fun too!

The United Way Greater Toronto is hosting the annual CN Tower Climb on Nov. 2.

Each year, the York University community comes together in support of the United Way’s uprising of care to benefit important local agencies and programs – some of which impact York University’s programs and students directly. Join us in rising to the challenge of climbing up 1,776 stairs to reach the top of the CN Tower on Nov. 2. Register under the “York University-York Cares” team to ensure that the red and white spirit is heard loud and proud. If you have any questions, email
