The Cause

Get Up There is a public awareness movement, fundraiser and annual event in Nova Scotia. Our mission is to raise the awareness for the prevention and reduce the stigma associated with the colorectal screening.

In partnership with the Canadian Cancer Society, the funds raised through this year’s event will be used to directly assist in promoting early screening efforts in Nova Scotia.

How much money do I have to raise and how do I raise money?

There is no minimum amount required, although we encourage each climber to raise at least $200. Tax receipts will be issued to all individuals who donate at least $20.
