14 reasons not to climb the CN Tower
February 27, 2017
Don’t bother signing up for WWF’s CN Tower Climb for Nature this April 8 and 9. Here’s 14 reasons why not.
#14 The view from the top is boring. Yawn.
#13 Climbing one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World is so overrated.
#12 Don’t bother. Only high-level athletes succeed in climbing the 1,776 steps.
#11 And climbing 144 flights of stairs will definitely not make you any fitter.
#10 Really, why raise funds to protect the environment from the effects of climate change? The Canadian Arctic will sort itself out.
#9 And don’t worry about those most affected by melting sea ice. The mighty polar bear can handle less habitat.
#8 Raising funds to save tigers’ habitat can wait until next year. Only 93 per cent of their historic habitat has been destroyed.
#7 It’s no fun indulging in friendly competition to inspire workplace giving with the team challenge.
#6 Who cares about Monday morning bragging rights?
#5 Even if you wanted to climb, the stairwells are crowded and dark.
#4 Your friends would never join you.
#3 You’ll be all alone and likely the last one to reach the top.
#2 You could put your athleticism to the test and compete for the fastest climb time with the Elite Challenge. But who cares how fast you climbed.
#1 There is absolutely nothing to celebrate when you reach the top.
Okay, so maybe there are a few reasons why the climb is worth doing. Register today.
