RIC’s SkyRise Chicago 2014 – It's Not Over Yet*
On Sunday, November 2, 2014, 3,000+ SkyRise Chicago participants climbed their way up the 2,109 steps of the Willis Tower in support of the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. The event was an amazing success, raising over $1 million and counting. All proceeds help RIC, the nation’s leading provider of comprehensive physical medicine and rehabilitation, deliver quality clinical care and cutting-edge research to more than 50,000 patients from around the world in areas such as spinal cord injury, stroke recovery, traumatic brain injury, bionic medicine and more.
“SkyRise is so much more than a stair-climbing event. It’s a celebration of the human spirit,” said Dr. Joanne C. Smith, president and CEO of RIC. “The climb brings together friends, family, patients past and present, doctors, therapists and community members to show their support for the unyielding perseverance that so many dedicate to rehabilitation.”
