Elizabeth (Liz) Rose is a 26-year-old mountain climber from West Vancouver, British Columbia who just became the youngest Canadian to climb the Seven Summits of the world.
Liz Rose is an inspiration. You can support her journey as she completes her seventh summit and becomes the youngest Canadian ever to complete the world’s Seven Summits. Liz is fundraising for Canuck Place Children’s Hospice so children with life-threatening illnesses and the families who love them have the opportunity to fulfill adventures of their own through the Canuck Place recreation therapy program.
“It feels surreal to have achieved my goal of climbing the highest summits in the world, with all of this starting out as a hobby I did with my parents. I feel so lucky to have been able to share this last climb with my family and friends, it has made this journey a truly special experience,” said Liz “Being able to dedicate my climb to Canuck Place has given my trip a greater meaning and I hope that we will reach our fundraising goal!”
Canuck Place helps children and families live in the moment with recreation therapy adventures that donors like you make possible. Last year, over 450 children, siblings and parents attended Canuck Place provincial recreation therapy camps.

Only two years ago Liz began an unlikely quest. Fresh out of university, she climbed her first peak in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro, the “Roof of Africa” with her father, John Rose. Her next adventure was with her mother, Susan, as they trekked to Everest Base Camp in Nepal together. It was during this trip that she decided that climbing the Seven Summits was what she wanted to do. Although new to the sport of climbing, Liz discovered her strength, determination and mental fortitude while taking on earth’s greatest peaks: Mt. Kilimanjaro; Argentina’s Aconcagua; the world’s highest peak, Everest the North Side from Tibet; Antarctica’s Vinson; North America’s Denali; and Russia’s Elbrus. Her quest has one summit remaining: Kosciuszko in Australia, which she will tackle this November 4th.
This time, Liz will be bringing something else in her backpack - the hearts and hopes of children and families at Canuck Place Children’s Hospice captured with their wishes written on a Canuck Place flag she will take to the top. By donating today and supporting Liz, you are also supporting the adventures of these children through the Canuck Place recreation program.
