Meet Scarlett Chen, Marina Madden and the rest of Team J.C.!

The J.C. in Team J.C. stands for Jeremy Chen, the inspiration behind the team. Comprised of his wife, Scarlett, close friends, colleagues and family, the team is back to climb in Jeremy’s name — and to help make a difference in the lives of others affected by life-threatening and life-altering lung disease.

Jeremy had lung cancer. He was diagnosed in late 2010 and passed away not long after our Stairclimb event in February 2011. He never smoked a day in his life – nor did any of his family or close friends. Jeremy is one of the 10-15 percent of lung cancer patients for whom the cause is a mystery.

This year Team J.C. is even bigger as more of his family and friends are taking part in his memory. Last year they were our top fundraising team — and it’s looking like they’ll be holding onto the title in 2012.

See Jeremy near the centre of the above Stairclimb 2011 photo wearing black. He is missed.


Thanks to everyone who joined Team Global! As promised, we have drawn a winner for this awesome set of prizes, valued at $750:

  • 2-night stay at the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre Hotel
  • A one month Exclusive Club membership with Kalev Fitness

And the winner is (drum roll please)…. ROB HARVEY! Congratulations, Rob!

Team Impact Award

Posted: February 9, 2012 in Impact Award, Prizes, Stairclimb, Teams

If you and your team are using Stairclimb as a way to flaunt your physical fitness, we want you to sign up to compete for this year’s Impact Award!

The Impact Award is awarded to the team of 4 (no more, no less – but don’t worry, if you’re part of a larger team but still want to compete, you can simply select 4 team members to participate) whose average climb time is the fastest. The winning team will walk away with a prize package from Impact Magazine for each team member, including a dry fit Impact Magazine t-shirt and a runcuf to keep your valuables safe while you’re working up a sweat!

The fine print:

  • Teams must have exactly 4 people (if you are part of a larger team, select and submit the names of the 4 participating team members before the registration deadline)
  • All members must be registered by the online registration deadline (Friday, February 24, 2012 at 11:59 PM)
  • Winning time is determined by averaging the times of your four participating team members

If you think your team has what it takes, contact Sophie ( before 11:59 PM on Friday, February 24 to register your 4 team members!
