Asking you to Support my efforts again SkyRise Chicago fundraiser
Once again, I am participating in SkyRise Chicago 2018, tackling the planet’s highest indoor tower climb at the Willis Tower to raise funds for the nation's best rehabilitation hospital, according to US News and World Report – the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, formerly known as the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC)!
I am participating along with my husband, Jim, who in memory of his late wife has a team to climb the tower in her memory. Brenda had a stroke and spent her reovery time at the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab in Chicago. She must have been a phenomenal woman from all accounts, as she actually climbed the tower two years after her release from the Rehab center. Her first year to climb, Benda climbed 71 floors and the second year climbed 45 floors before passing away from cancer.
SRALAB 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 2017 will directly support advances in patient care and cutting-edge research at SRALAB.
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 via stationary hand-cycling the equivalent distance uphill. These options give anyone, no matter their level of ability, the opportunity to participate.
Help me as I challenge myself physically and mentally to complete the climb and support SRALAB, a not-for profit hospital organization. Your donation will help SRALAB continue to provide patients with world-class care for the brightest possible future.
