KILI CLIMB - Climb Kilimanjaro

Join us as we “Tell Cancer to Take a Hike!

Launched last year, Tell Cancer to Take a Hike is a unique fundraiser that featured three (3) components – a climb of Mount Kilimanjaro, a series of hikes in and around Montreal called Kili chez nous, and a one-time hike in Stowe, Vermont called Kili chez Stowe. In 2018, more than 100 enthusiastic participants and sponsors collectively raised over $550,000 to support Hope & Cope!

You are invited to be part of the action as we launch the 2nd annual Tell Cancer to Take a Hike 2019 campaign to benefit Hope & Cope

We offer three ways to challenge yourself:

1. Kili chez nous: Stay close to home and discover the beautiful mountains and breathtaking scenery in Montreal and surrounding regions of Quebec.

2. Kili chez Stowe: Participate in this one-day celebration with Montrealers who have homes in Stowe,Vermont and hike the magnificent mountains neighboring our border.

3. Mount Kilimanjaro: Head out to Africa and embark on the adventure of a lifetime as we Climb Mount Kilimanjaro and take Hope & Cope to the top of the world - a ten (10) day, transformative journey!

Our 2019 goal is to exceed the $550,000 raised in 2018, and we need your help to make this year EPIC.
