Motivation for the Rise
Hi everyone, I am for the first year able to tackle the SkyRise Chicago, the planet’s highest indoor tower climb in the Willis Tower (Chicagoan call it Sears Tower) to raise funds for the nation's best rehabilitation hospital – the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, formerly known as the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC)! Rank #1 for 29 years in a row according to U.S. News - https://health.usnews.com/best-hospitals/area/il/rehabilitation-institute-of-chicago-6431012/rehabilitation
The AbilityLab 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 will directly support advances in patient care and cutting-edge research.
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 by hand-cycling the equivalent distance. These options give anyone, no matter their level of ability, the opportunity to participate. Due to both options being available I decided that I am going to climb by foot up the tower to reach the 103rd floor in honor to those who have trouble or can no longer walk.
The donation is greatly appreciated it as it will allow me to climb the Willis Tower and it will help me as I challenge myself physically and mentally to complete the climb and support of the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, a non-profit hospital. Your donation will help the research hospital continue to provide patients with world-class care for the brightest possible future.
