National Academy of Osteopathy Student Steps Up For United Way

NAO student Ryan Smith raises $4000 for the United Way climbing the CN Tower in Toronto, Canada.

Oct. 21, 2012 - PRLog -- For the 32 years old National Academy of Osteopathy student Ryan Smith, climbing up the stairs of the CN Tower in Toronto (Canada) on Saturday was about more than just making it to the top. It was something he was dreaming to do for a long time and now he can check besting 1,776 stairs for the Enbridge CN Tower Climb for United Way off his list.

Ryan was one of the thousands who successfully made the trek over the weekend, a trip that usually takes 58 seconds by elevator for the more than a million who visit the top each year.

The event saw student and individual fundraisers contribute to the $2.5 million fundraising goal as part of the United Way Toronto’s biggest annual event, now in its 35th year.

“The money is all going back into the community,” said United Way Toronto vice president. “It funds a vital network of social services and community agencies.”

At the top of the tower, the mood was celebratory mixed with exhaustion. Participants clambered out of the stairwell, sweaty, red faced and at a loss for words.

“Climbing the CN Tower was one of the hardest things I ever did and I am proud of Ryan for doing this extreme athletic event and raising over $4000 for the United Way” Said Dr Shahin Pourgol, president of NAO.
