Everybody was helpful And yes, no cell phones. I skipped the T-shirt part because of the lineup. And running and doing stairs do not seem to be related. Between spending $ 100 watching the Leafs or climbing the stairs for a good cause, I do the stairs.
I'm visiting Canada as a student.
I climbed CN Tower, symbol of Canada, for the first time.
There were many volunteers and they helped and cheer for climbers.
I conquered CN Tower without any rest breaks thanks to their support.
Finally, I could look over beutiful scenery from top. It made me relax. After the climb, the organization provided water, juice and snacks.
Also we got a photo memory and T-shirt.
These will be my treasure.
It was great memorable experience.
I'm thankful to people related to this event.
Urge everyone to give it a try. Different from running. Well organized, but there are lineups. I am actually looking if there is another one for United Way later this year.

I finally did this climb again after a 14 year hiatus, it was fun as I expected. Well organized and great value for my time and money. You forget how great the City looks from up high, helped immensely by a gorgeous bright and sunny morning.
There were no lineups and relative stair-free paths all the way up, my climbing friend and I started at 8:43 am and managed to break 20 minutes, we were a formidable 2-person mixed team and it would have been nice to compare our times against other teams.
The mood in the convention centre could have been more lively with the music turned up a small notch, and the food and snacks after were great but more seating and better layout would have improved the small area.
Kudos to all the many, many volunteers who were at every turn and all the school kids who had their hand-coloured posters of encouragement on each of the 144 landings we passed! The former Mayor of Toronto (David Miller, now the CEO of WWF Canada) who greeted everyone as we entered the Tower at the top was also a nice bonus.
Good race, well organized for the amount of people, arrived around 6:30, started climb at 7:11, finished in 19:58. Didn't have many overcrowding problems, was easy to pass people on the small staircase, most slower people went outside.
