At the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC), they believe anyone can soar to great heights. From RIC's innovative clinical care treatments to its cutting-edge brain-controlled bionic arms and robotic walking therapies, RIC gives patients the tools they need to restore ability following a stroke, brain injury or other trauma or illness.

This year's event, held at the iconic Willis Tower, takes place Sunday, November 6 from 7 a.m. to noon. Your fundraising support will fuel RIC's cutting-edge patient care and innovative research, offering thousands of adults and children the greatest hope for the future.

SkyRise Chicago: Get Ready to Tower Up!
The challenge of SkyRise Chicago is to raise awareness and money for the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC) -- so we can continue to lead the field and our patients into a very bright future.

RIC invites you to help make a powerful impact on our patients' lives.

By foot power
Run, jog, or walk to the top of the Willis Tower, the tallest stair climb in North America. From the start line, you're just 2,109 steps away from Skydeck Chicago featuring views spanning up to four states and The Ledge...a glass-floor experience 1,353 feet over Chicago!

By hand power
Crank your way to the sky! We'll have hand cycles on site, calibrated for resistance and time to match the stair-climbing experience -- all 103 floors of it. Video monitors will provide biofeedback simulating cyclists ascending a climb. Or if you prefer, bring your own stationary hand cycle.

By brain power
We've set the fundraising entry low enough to let everyone participate. But there's no limit to how high you can go. Exercise your creative talents, push the limits of your network and discover how much you can contribute to RIC and make a difference!
