Have you ever seen anyone brave the Grouse Grind wearing a ball gown?
That's what a group of 13 women will be wearing when climbing the Grind on September 29th for the inaugural 'Gowns on the Grind' fundraiser.
It's the brainchild of Karen Stark, from North Vancouver, who works in the sports and clothing industry and has a penchant for contributing to - and organizing-worthwhile causes.
Stark asked some of her longtime friends in her life to join her for the event which will see them adorn the gowns and conquer the Grind in an untimed, zero pressure setting.
While not looking for outside participants, the gown-Grinders will have a videographer and photographer on hand when they take off.
Rather than trying to show off high fashion and experience the great outdoors, the group is just going to start hiking as a nice big group and draw some attention. Any money raised will go to KidSport, a not for profit organization the provides financial assistance for kids who want to play sports but might not be able to otherwise.
