Come together with 1,500 of your closest friends to make the Big D Climb, presented by Ivie and Associates, the BIGGEST stair climb in North Texas. On January 25, 2014, families, friends and co workers will join forces to race up 52 flights of stairs at Fountain Place in Downtown Dallas. Sound crazy? Not when it is for the mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society: to find a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
Your $45 registration fee goes right towards this life saving mission. Not to mention, you get an official Big D Climb t-shirt, training pass and recomendations from 24 Hour Fitness, awesome goody bag from our amazing sponsors and partners and access to the Post Event After Party! Participate as an individual or team or join one of our challenges like the Commercial Real Estate Challenge spearheaded by the 2014 Corporate Chair, CBRE Dallas or the First Responders Challenge where fire fighters race in full gear!
