Captains should register first and choose Register a Team (For Captains) and then have their teammates register afterwards by choosing Join a Team and searching for the Team Name.

Each participant needs to select Corporate Super Team - Western University from the drop down menu.

Each participant should indicate Organization Name to be Faculty / Division (i.e. Faculty of Science OR Financial Services)

Each team of 6-11 people will be entered into a draw for a team prize.  Additional ballots can be earned for each $100 raised by each team.

We will be arranging buses to and from One London Place – departing campus around 4:30pm and returning at 6:30pm.  We will reach out to captains the week of October 23rd to secure numbers!!!

We would like to encourage as many Western StairClimbers to join our #purpleandproud initiative as we aim to climb between 5:15-5:30pm.

Living Well @ Western is hosting a series of StairClimb warm-ups in the Social Sciences Building every Tuesday and Friday from 12:20-12:40pm during the month of October. More information.
