SkyRise Chicago raises funds for the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC), the nation's #1 rehabilitation hospital since 1991.
At RIC, we believe anyone can soar to great heights. From RIC's innovative clinical care treatments to its cutting-edge, brain- controlled bionic arms and robotic walking therapies, RIC gives patients the tools they need to restore ability following a stroke, brain injury or other trauma or illness.
