Past events

Conquer the Tower

They came, they saw, and they most certainly conquered. Conquer the Tower was back on November 8th at the Canda Games Complex! Thirteen brave participants worked hard to raise funds for PRO Kids and the Thunder Bay Diving Club. The more money they raised, the higher they had to jump off the diving towers.

Between participant pledges and sponsorships, Conquer the Tower raised over $22,000 for our two organizations!

We would like to thank our volunteers, donors, particpants and this year sponsors:

Annual Events

PRO Kids family skates

We invite you to put on your skates and helmet and join us on the ice at the Fort William Gardens for not one but two family skates. Both skates have awesome games and prizes, face painting and special guests. Look for our Shaw Family skate this holiday season and our Mac's Family Skate next spring!

Conquer the Tower

The fundraiser that makes the biggest splash! Each fall we invite local community leaders and business owners to take the plunge off the diving towers at the Canada Games Complex. The more money raised the higher they have to jump.
