Storm the Wall Cancelled to Limit COVID-19 Risks

Dear Storm the Wall competitors

In light of the increasing concerns around coronavirus (COVID-19), UBC Recreation has made the difficult decision to cancel Storm the Wall. While we are disappointed that we are unable to provide the experience of Storm the Wall this year, we recognize that continuing to host the event could contribute unnecessary risks to participants, staff, and the community.

All payments will be refunded to the original method of payment. UBC Recreation will follow-up as needed to process refunds.

We encourage everyone to be informed about COVID-19 and continue taking the recommended preventative measures.

Thank you for your interest in Storm the Wall. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to seeing you at our next event.
