SkyRise Chicago 2013

logoNew

This morning I was lucky enough to be able to be part of the SkyRise Chicago race, which consists of racing to the top of the Willis (Sears) tower. 103 flights up to the top of the tallest building in the Western hemisphere. Andy and I were able to take part because his aunt had two extra entries, how lucky are we! The race participants get donations to aid the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago that helps people rehabilitate after amputations, strokes, or other traumas. These individuals with bionic legs, or other physical disabilities take part in the climb and reach the top! It was so inspiring to see so many people overcoming obstacles to help give others the chance to do the same. Overall, it was a great event, for an even better cause.
