Pitt Meadows resident Caleigh Meneghetti will be leaping over cars and swinging over a lagoon this Sunday - all to raise money for the BC Cancer Foundation.
Meneghetti has been training for the 2013 Concrete Hero event, set to take place this Sunday.
A colleague at work, who was planning to take part in the cancer fundraiser with his girlfriend, also convinced Meneghetti and her fiance to sign up.
The team of four is called the Best Team Ever - her colleague's last name is Best.
"For me the big challenge is running, I'm not a very good runner," Meneghetti said, although she has participated in sports all her life.
A lot of the events have been kept a secret so Meneghetti isn't really sure what she will be challenged with on Sunday. Cancer has hit home for both Meneghetti and her fiance.
Her grandmother died of the disease when she was young, and her fiance's uncle died of cancer.
"Those [deaths] are still resonating," she said.
Participants will leap over cars and climb buses in the Lions Gate Lockdown, swing over waters of Stanley Park's Lost Lagoon, climb over the Chief, in addition to several other urban-themed obstacles along a nine-kilometre, timed route through the streets and alleyways of Vancouver, before finishing at the Strathcona Park oval track with an urbanthemed block party.
