The Rock ’N’ Roll Climb of Hope Run will take place once again this year in Edmonton’s river valley on Saturday, September 14, 2013. Participants will run or walk five kilometres along the designated path – with a few sets of stairs included – to the sweet sounds of rock ’n’ roll. Funds raised will support the Alberta Cancer Foundation and benefit the Cross Cancer Institute.
The event, presented by Hudsons Canadian Tap House, is for all ages and abilities and definitely for rock stars who enjoy all the affiliated rock gear. Face paint, eyeliner, spandex, neon hair and leather are encouraged for a chance to win prizes.
Since the event started five years ago, participants have raised more than $400,000 for the Alberta Cancer Foundation, benefiting the Cross Cancer Institute. This year promises to raise more.
