About SkyRise Chicago

SkyRise Chicago challenges participants to conquer the world's tallest indoor stair climb in one of three ways: 

By foot power
Sprint, jog or walk to the top of Willis Tower! Don't be daunted. From the start line, you're just 2,109 steps away from SkyDeck Chicago featuring The Ledge. Here you can take in panoramic views of up to four states. Learn more...

By hand power
Crank your way to the sky! Test your upper-body strength in the hand cycle category using stationary hand cycles calibrated for resistance and time to match the 103-floor stair climbing experience. Feel free to bring your own stationary hand cycle if you prefer. Anyone can do it! Learn more

By brain power
Exercise your creative talents and discover just how big an impact you can have in patients' lives when you flex your fundraising muscles!  Challenge yourself to make the biggest difference possible. Learn more
