Yes, that’s right. You can have the chance to climb to the 84th floor of Taipei 101. Once you finish climbing (whether you make it or not), you can go to the top and have a buffet lunch complements of Jason’s Market. The entry fee is NT$500 plus a mandatory donation to charity of NT$2000. It’s going to be a lot of fun, and at least a few of the hiking club members are sure to join.
If you get someone to pledge 1 NT for every 5 steps you take, and you make it up the 1899 steps to the top, you could get NT$380 in pledge money that way. Otherwise you could just pay the money yourself since it’s going to a good cause anyway, the Garden of Hope Foundation. See the following links for more info:
If you would like to put a Team Name down on your application form, please put Taipei Hiking Club.
Just so you know, this is not a race, and there’s plenty of time to complete the climb if you are not in the best of shape.
Hope to see you there. Keep an eye on this thread for more information as we get closer to May 21st.
