After-School All-Stars Holds High-Rise Stair Climb titled “Climb 4 Kids”
The nation’s largest school-based after-school program holds athletic fundraiser at
4 World Trade Center this fall
New York City, New York: Taking place on October 22, 2015, After-School All-Stars is holding their first high-rise stair climb at 4 World Trade Center. 400 athletes will trek their way up 68 floors or 1,000 steps, to the top of the building. The event will support the New York and Newark chapters of After-School All-Stars, a national after-school program that provides comprehensive school-based out-of-school time programs to nearly 80,000 participants at more than 360 schools throughout the United States.
All are invited to take part in the event. Registration is free to each participant, though climbers are required to raise money from family and friends prior to the climb date. However, individuals are encouraged and incentivized to go above and beyond to raise additional funds. The top fundraising team will win a night at the Maserati of Manhattan. A raffle will also take place at the event with the winner taking a Maserati home for the weekend. To find out more, visit www.crowdrise.com/AllStarClimb4Kids
