Bill Scanlon's SkyRise Chicago 2016 webpage
As you all know, I spent seven weeks in the winter of 2010-11 as a patient on the spinal cord injury floor at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC). Subsequent to my release from in-patient care, I did out-patient rehab at one of the RIC's facilities in suburban Chicago for 3+ months. Today I walk, live on my own, play golf and enjoy my life in large part as a result of the efforts of the staff of this amazing place. On November 6, 2016, I will be honored to be able to participate in SkyRise Chicago 2016, tackling the planet’s highest indoor tower climb at the Willis Tower to raise funds for the RIC. 103 floors, more than 2100 stairs which I hope to complete in 45-60 minutes.
According to US News and World Report, the RIC is our nation's best rehabilitation hospital. It 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 2016 will directly support advances in patient care and cutting-edge research at RIC.
Please consider helping me as I continue to support the life enriching work done by the RIC, a not-for profit hospital organization, to benefit so many patients that find themselves in similar circumstances to those I was in about six years ago. Your tax deductible donation will help RIC continue to provide those patients with world-class care for their brightest possible future. I know from experience the miraculous results that can be achieved.
Thanks so much for your consideration and best wishes. Tower Up!
