Veterans Going Vertical - 2018 [Colonel George A. Burbules - USA Retired]
Hello Again Everyone!
I am climbing again, now in the memory of my father, COL JOHN G. BURBULES, US ARMY who was laid to rest in Arlington National Cemetery, March 2018.
Myself, along with my fellow Veteran Teammates in the SkyRise Chicago 2018 event, 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)!
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 2018 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, support SRALAB, a not-for profit hospital organization, and climb for all of those who've served.
Your donation will help SRALAB continue to provide patients with world-class care for the brightest possible future.
George A. Burbules
Colonel, U.S. Army Retired
