iClimb Brings in 30K for Mental Health Services

Just over $30-thousand dollars was raised at this year's United Way iClimb event.

The 1,000 step challenge was held at the WFCU Centre on Wednesday to raise money for mental health and counselling programs.

United Way is celebrating its 10th year of the signature event having raised $412,600 over the last decade. 

2019 was another record year for volunteer participation and community partners coming together to run the event, including 200 volunteers and 18 community organizations, such as Windsor Police Services, the FCA Motor Citizens, and St. Clair College.

In previous years, about $55,000 was raised in the event.
