TAYLOR, B.C. – The Vertical Slam made a presentation at the District of Taylor council meeting on Monday.

Laurie Cardinal and Jada Rogers from the Vertical Slam made a presentation about the event, which is set to take place at the Big Bam Ski Hill on June 10th, 2017. The registered non-profit society hosted the event last year to help promote and raise money for the Big Bam Ski Hill. The first Vertical Slam took place last June, and despite rainy weather saw 460 participants take to the hill for the 2, 5, and 10 kilometre footrace courses.

A second Vertical Slam was scheduled for last September, but had to be postponed due to a lack of registration to cover the costs of the event.

Organiser Laurie Cardinal says that for the upcoming Vertical Slam, the event will also feature a seven kilometre obstacle course in addition to the 10 kilometre hiking course. Jada Rogers says that this year, the group plans to raise money for the School District’s hot lunch program, and instead will be renting the hill for the event. Rogers also stressed that their organization is separate from the Big Bam Ski Hill, and said that for that reason, the group has dropped the ‘Big Bam’ portion of their name.

The Vertical Slam is looking to raise approximately $15,000 to cover their race cost and fundraising goals.
