Climb the Willis Tower for a cause: SkyRise Chicago – November 3
  • October 17, 2013
  • One race in Chicago gives its competitors one BIG challenge: climb the tallest building in the city: Willis Tower (I know, it’s still the Sears Tower to me too).  SkyRise Chicago challenges participants to climb 103 stories to raise money to benefit the Rehab Institute of Chicago. Funds from the race will help RIC make strides toward its mission of serving “as the world’s leading scientific hospital for the innovation and application of new and more promising treatments that improve and eliminate the effects of injury, disease and debilitating health condition.”

    It’s 30 minutes (hard minutes) of your life. Why wouldn’t you do it?
