Grind for Kids raises money for BC Children’s Hospital’s cardiology unit

Global BC reporter Aaron McArthur and his daughter Addison participate in Grind for Kids.


Former young cardiology patients ascended the steep stairs of Vancouver’s Grouse Grind side by side with the doctors who helped save their lives today.

Liam had open heart surgery less than eight weeks ago.

He joined a group of climbers heading up the Grouse Grind, including his heart surgeon and a couple of other doctors from BC Children’s Hospital.

Grind for Kids raises money for the hospital’s cardiology unit.

Since it began five years ago, the event has generated more than $640,000 for B.C.’s sick kids.

To support the program, hikers are asked to get their friends and family to pledge $1 or more for every Grouse Grind they complete between now and October.
