Help me conquer this challenge
My name is Gabriela Salgado. Known lovingly as Gaby by my friends and family, I am 33 years old and live with Cerebral Palsy. A disability that has left me with limited mobility in my legs and upper body. Despite my limitations, I have achieved many milestones such as graduating from college with a master's degree. As the saying goes I'm thirsty for more. This is my next challenge.
For the secomd year in a row, I am participating in SkyRise Chicago 2017, 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 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.
This is also a personal challenge for me to prove to myself that I can do this. Physically, I have had some setbacks recently and I see this as an opportunity to acknowledge that I am a survivor.
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. Please help me complete this challenge by contributing to my fundraising efforts
