Seek the Peak

Seek The Peak is 13km of fitness bragging rights. Test your fitness and overall mental toughness alone or tackle the awe-inspiring 1,400m climb as a team. Every upward step, from Ambleside Park to the Peak of Vancouver at Grouse Mountain, raises valuable funds for the BC Cancer Foundation’s lifesaving work against breast cancer.

Stong’s believes in being a good neighbour. Our support of local communities and charities dates back to the first store opened by Carson Stong in 1931.
Mr. Stong’s generosity and leadership have served as the foundation of Stong’s commitment to the community. That involvement has earned us a reputation of being more than just the local grocer. Stong’s proudly supports our local community focusing on our Children’s Schools, Educational & Sports Programs as well as our local Community Organizations & Festivals, through the donation of products and services for fundraising events.
Online School Rebate Program
For all parents/faculty that spend money online at express.stongs.com, Stong’s can donate 4% of the orders back to the PAC. The more parents that participate, the higher the revenue will be generated for the school. I.e. For every $1000 spent, $40 will be donated to the PAC. Just choose your school during the checkout process and we will take care of the rest!
Stong’s Market is providing an exciting opportunity for parents to raise money for their children’s school through their weekly grocery purchases. We at Stong’s feel confident that this is an excellent opportunity to raise much needed funds for the school and ultimately our children.
