Orrington Plaza (1603 Orrington) - Evanston, IL
Registration at 8:00am
Climb starts at 9:00am

The US Surgeon General reported that more Americans suffer from addiction than from all the cancers combined. Join us for the fourth year as we climb the Orrington Plaza's 20 stories to confront this health crisis and raise treatment scholarships for teens and adults with addiction!

To join the event, visit our Crowdrise page

$25 a climber
$25 Recovery Advocate (supporters, not climbers)
$100 for a team of 5
$15 for climbers 18 and younger

Climbers of all abilities, ages 5 and above, are encouraged to participate!

Climb the 20 stories to the top at your own pace. For those in need of a greater challenge, climb the building 2,3,4 or even 5 times! The first group of participants will begin the climb at 9 AM. This is for climbers looking to time themselves and run competitively. At 9:15 we will begin releasing teams and at 9:30 we will begin releasing individuals. Climbers will be dispersed in groups of 5 and released in waves.

Plan to arrive a little earlier than you hope to climb to register and pick up your t-shirt and bib number. We will provide all climbers with plenty of water-- stations will be available every 5 floors, and snacks will be provided at the end of your climb. 

Stick around for bagels, coffee and the drawing of our raffle! All climbers will receive complimentary T-shirts, breakfast, and a raffle ticket.
