If you're checking out my page and thinking about contributing, you're also awesome. Please do what you can to be part of this extraordinary experience by donating to the SRALab/RIC and supporting all of us who love this stair climb and all that it represents.
I am taking part in RIC SkyRise Chicago (for the 6th time!) by taking on the highest tower climb on the continent at the Willis Tower and raising funds to benefit the nation's best rehabilitation hospital right here in our own Chicagoland backyard.
SkyRise Chicago is a first-of-its-kind event, the only tower climb in the world to offer two modes of participation - by foot up the Willis Tower stairs and by hand via stationary hand cycling the equivalent! These options will allow participation in SkyRise Chicago for individuals of varying ability.
The Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, formerly the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC), is the global leader in physical medicine and rehabilitation for adults and children with the most severe, complex conditions -- from traumatic brain and spinal cord injury to stroke, amputation and cancer-related impairment. The Shirley Ryan AbilityLab expands and accelerates leadership in the field that began at RIC in 1953 -- its care and research designated the "No. 1 Rehabilitation Hospital in America" by U.S. News & World Report every year since 1991. Upon opening in March 2017, the $550 million, 1.2-million-square-foot Shirley Ryan AbilityLab became the first-ever "translational" research hospital in which clinicians, scientists, innovators and technologists work together in the same space, surrounding patients, discovering new approaches and applying (or "translating") research real time. Applied research focuses particularly in the areas of neuroscience, bionic medicine, musculoskeletal medicine and technology transfer. This unique model enables patients to have 24/7 access to the brightest minds, the latest research and the best opportunity for recovery. For more information, go to www.sralab.org.
Help me as I challenge myself physically and mentally to help SRALab/RIC, a not-for profit hospital organization, to continue to serve as the nation’s leading rehabilitation hospital providing patients world-class care for the brightest possible future.
The Sky's the Limit!
