No. But participants must raise a minimum amount to qualify for award categories and finisher entitlements like medal, e-certificate and finisher t-shirt.

This is to encourage participants to garner donations and aim to raise $300 (for individuals), $600 (for family and friends) and $3,000 (for teams/corporations). By doing so, participants help to raise funds and awareness of the importance of palliative and hospice care.

Upon registration, you will receive an email confirmation with a link to your profile page as shown in this line ‘View and share your profile page now’. Click on it, copy and share the link with your friends and supporters. They can donate through that link and the amount will be reflected on your profile page. When all the donations add up and meet the qualifying amount for your category, you are ready for the vertical challenge!

For team leader (i.e the person who created/started the team), you will also receive a ‘Team code’ in the email upon registration. This ‘Team Code’ is required by your team members to indicate which team they join when they register.

Your generous donations will go into meeting the needs of our beneficiaries and their families, and towards building up our capacity and capability.

For participants in the competitive category, you must complete your challenge in one session, however please be mindful of your own safety and physical condition. For those in groups, different members can complete their portion on different days BUT each member must complete their portion in a single session/attempt.

You can attempt the virtual challenge at the following venue(s), whichever is convenient: staircases at HDB blocks, condos, offices/ high-rise buildings and hills. Those who participate in greater elevation category may consider their attempt at tall building like SkyVille@Dawson, Bukit Timah Hill, etc where they can do loops to complete the distance in a single session.

Please observe social distancing and safety measures while attempting the challenge.

Participants of the competitive category must use devices with barometric sensor (for indoor tracking) or GPS-enabled fitness devices (for outdoors tracking) such as Garmin, Suunto or Polar that can accurately record elevation gain.

Once the participant has registered, qualified for the challenge and completed the distance with record on the chosen device, simply take a screenshot of the tracking app. The screenshot must clearly show date, elevation gain and time taken.

Participants of the challenge category are not required to use the above devices, however, they should still submit proof of their completion using any apps that can log elevation gain in order to receive the ‘Finisher’ entitlements.

Please click here for results submission.

All funds raised will be directed to HCA Hospice Care to support their home and day hospice services. No refund of donations will be made.

Once the screenshots are verified, the T-shirt, medal and e-certificate would be delivered to the registered address within two weeks upon the end of the event.
