The ALA is looking for volunteers to help on Saturday morning. I know it's early, but you're done by 11 or noon so you still have the afternoon to enjoy the day. We've helped with water stops, registration, and passing out shirts to the participants, so there's lots to do.
If you sign up for this event, please send me an e-mail with your contact information (First and Last Name and e-mail address) so that I can forward on to the organizer from the ALA. They will be sending out information packets pretty soon.
On Saturday, February 23rd 2013, the American Lung Association of Minnesota presents Race UP the Place, a stair climb fundraising event. A diverse crowd will gather at Accenture Tower in downtown Minneapolis, to climb 30 floors/60 flights/660 stairs to the top of the building.
Race UP the Place participants, as individuals or teams, competitive and noncompetitive will climb their way up the 30 stories in 10-second intervals, to arrive at the top. Participants will use the event, sometimes called a "vertical road race," as a fitness target, a competitive race, an effort to support clean air and healthy lungs or simply as a great way to have fun being part of something brand new.
YOU CAN DO IT!
The average climber takes less than 15 minutes to get to the top of the tower!
