As a tribute to Andy McCue, we are participating in SkyRise Chicago this November. We will be climbing 105 flights of stairs at the Willis Tower to raise funds for his acute inpatient rehab facility.
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. Andy’s primary physical therapist asked if they could do the climb together, and we are confident that this will be possible due to the tremendous progress we have seen as a result of his time at SRA Lab.
We ask that you help as we challenge ourselves physically and mentally to complete the climb and support 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. And the SRA Lab will be able to continue to thrive and offer hope to people during what often feels like a hopeless time.
We cannot say enough good things about SRA Lab, and we look forward to doing what we can to give back to the place that has given so much to Andy and his family. Please support them in providing patients with the best care that sets them up to reach their fullest potential.
