Media Advisory - Climb the CN Tower to see polar bears. Here's how

Raise $500 before end of month for chance to win trip to see the iconic animals in the wild

TORONTO, Jan. 7, 2016 /CNW/ - New Year's resolutions often involve exercise, exotic travel and givingback. With WWF, Canadians can accomplish all three: Climb the CN Tower, be among the first to raise at least $500 for a good cause and be entered to win a trip to see polar bears in the wild with a WWF expert.

Every $500 raised by the end of January for WWF's CN Tower Climb for Nature gets the entrant a chance to win a trip for two — valued at approximately $11,000 — to see polar bears in Churchill, Manitoba.

There's an excellent chance of winning as few participants get their fundraising going so early for the climb.

Raising $500 qualifies each nature-lover for a chance to win, even if they're not able to make the climb.
