Tech Grind for United Way

Tech Grind for United Way

About This Campaign

Metro Vancouver’s tech sector is pumped to climb the Grouse Grind® – Mother Nature’s Stairmaster – in support of our community through United Way of the Lower Mainland.
By participating or making a donation, your support is moving families from poverty to possibility, helping kids be all that they can be, and helping seniors stay independent and active by building stronger communities for all.

And it’s going to be a lot of fun!
The Tech
Grind® takes place on Saturday, October 1st at 10:00am. Race day activities include yoga, snacks, beverages and a chance to mix and mingle with other members of the tech community before, during, and after the Grouse Grind®! And we’ll make sure you get back down the mountain with a complimentary ride on the Grouse Mountain Gondola.

Our event is generously supported by Deloitte, the presenting sponsor of the Tech Grind®. Thank you to Deloitte and all of its staff for their generous contribution in support of children, families and seniors in our community.

United Way has been helping people in the Lower Mainland for over 80 years. Working with over 183 local community partners, we fund 290 programs and services each year to create a better future for children, families and seniors.  With your help, United Way puts together the right resources and people to move families from poverty to possibility, help kids be all they can be, and build strong communities for all.
