SkyRise Chicago 2016

Team Alex

Palos Heights District 128 staff members are participating in SkyRise Chicago 2016, 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 Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC)!

RIC 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.

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 us raise funds in support of Alex Muller, a second grade student at Chippewa School. Alex suffered a stroke at a very young age and continues therapy at RIC. Palos Heights District  staff members are joining Alex and his family in the stair climb on November 6, 2016.
