William Blair is participating in SkyRise Chicago 2017 (Sunday, November 5), 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 (SRALAB), formerly known as the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC)! Brian Singer is on the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab Foundation Board which helps to provide 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. To encourage participation, we are offering a free registration for the first ten William Blair climbers. Follow the instructions below to get registered.
Each participant must raise a minimum of $125 but through William Blair’s 1:1 matching gifts program (http://blairport/community/co_matching_gifts.aspx), this is easy as we will match your personal donations of $50 or more, up to $1,500/year, in support of your participation. Also, you don’t need to climb to donate or raise money. Support the William Blair team today by visiting our page and making a donation.
Help us as we challenge ourselves 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.
