Felix Launches Santa Themed Stair Climb

Are you ready to 'step up' to the challenge and climb one of London's most iconic buildings to feed Londoners in need?

In partnership with Canary Wharf Group, we have launched The Santa Stair Climb, taking place on Sunday, 19th of November 2023 at One Canada Square in Canary Wharf. We are challenging runners to complete 1,031 steps up the iconic Canary Wharf skyscraper, finishing with incredible views across London from the 48th floor with the goal of helping us deliver 870,000 meals to Londoners in need this winter.

The capital is still gripped by a cost-of-living crisis with people across our city struggling to put food on their table and with winter just around the corner, we know that more people are going to be faced with the horrible choice of skipping meals.

Charlotte Hill OBE, CEO at The Felix Project said: “We know this winter is set to be a very worrying time for so many, but particularly for those on low incomes. Last year, high energy and food prices left many facing the impossible choice between heating and eating, we saw unprecedented levels of need and we expect this year to be just as bad. It is vital The Felix Project is there to give as much food as it can to the incredible organisations who are feeding people facing food insecurity."

You can sign up now with our early bird special for just £25! With that you get a green Santa hat & outfit and with our partnership with Canary Wharf Group, exclusive activities and offers are available to all runners and their families. As London's premiere Santa-themed stair climb, It's going to be a truly unique and festive experience.

Shobi Khan, CEO of Canary Wharf Group said: “We are delighted to be hosting The Felix Project’s first ever challenge event at One Canada Square this November.  Our partnership with The Felix Project launched in May with the creation of the Canary Wharf Green Scheme – which is already saving hundreds of kilos of food from going to waste and distributing it straight to those who need it through community organisations in Tower Hamlets.  Through supporting the Santa Stair Climb, our goal is to donate 870,000 meals to those who need it most in the capital. So I encourage anyone who enjoys a challenge to register your place today and help us raise funds for this important cause.”

Charlotte Hill added "Not everyone knows that Santa Claus used to be green. Well, this November we're claiming him back!
