Welcome to George A. Burbules - COL US ARMY-Retired
Hello Everyone. Me any My Team: Veterans Going Vertical are climbing for a SIXTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR in SkyRise Chicago 2019, tackling the planet’s highest indoor tower climb of the Willis Tower to raise funds for the nation's best rehabilitation hospital – the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, formerly known as the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC)!
The AbilityLab provides world-class rehabilitation care to thousands of patients for traumatic brain and spinal cord injury, stroke and cancer recovery, and more. The funds raised through SkyRise Chicago will directly support advances in patient care and cutting-edge research. I have made it my mission to greet and connect with every service veteran who is admitting under our care, and I have met some incredible heroes from the US ARMY, NAVY, AIR FORCE and MARINES, each with loving, strong family members. Quite an honor.
SkyRise Chicago is truly a special event. It’s the only tower climb in the world to offer two modes of participation - by foot up the Willis Tower stairs and by hand-cycling the equivalent distance. These options give anyone, no matter their level of ability, the opportunity to participate.
Help me as I challenge myself physically and mentally, along with my Team of Service Veterangs to complete the climb and support of the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, a non-profit hospital. Your donation will help the research hospital continue to provide patients with world-class care for the brightest possible future.
