Proceeds from the event will help to provide 85 scholarships for underprivileged Okanagan youth. Over the past five years, the event has raised $100,000 for charity.

“In 2020, we will continue to build on our success from 2019 and are looking forward to another year of full programs,” said Elevation Outdoors Mike Green.

“(We will) continue breaking down the barriers that many in our community face and provide both full and partial scholarships, (which) creates opportunities our participants may not otherwise have.”

Team registration for the event starts on March 26 at 9 a.m. and for more information, you can visit the event organizer’s website.

Elevation Youth is an association that provides sport and outdoor programs for underprivileged youth in the Okanagan.
