Join us on Sunday, October 21, 2018, for the first charity stair climb to be held at Salesforce Tower, the tallest building in San Francisco.  Register to climb to the 61st Floor and enjoy spectacular views from the top – all in support of cancer research. 

You can participate as an individual or get friends, family members and colleagues together to form a team. 100% of the donations you raise in support of your climb will go to innovative cancer research by today’s best young scientists, funded by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation.

Entry Fee: $40

Fundraising Minimum: $150 to support cancer research

Registration Deadline: Wednesday, October 17, at 5:00 PM Pacific time

Minimum Age to Participate: 18 years old

We encourage all Runyon Up participants to take their fundraising to the next level!  Signing up is just the first step – fundraising will make a real difference!  Not only that, but the money you give and raise could be matched by one of our generous donors, doubling its impact!  See how the match works here.

Start times will be staggered.  Participants will be launched in waves of approximately 65 people every 15 minutes, with climbers starting in 7-second intervals.  You can choose your preferred start time window when you register.  Elite Climbers who plan to climb competitively will be scheduled in Wave 1 at 8:30 am.  (If you are an Elite Climber, please contact us.)  All other climbers can select a one-hour window for their start time on a first-come, first-served basis.  Start times will be posted on the Runyon Up website and emailed to climbers the week of the event.

Not up for climbing 61 stories? Join the Virtual Climb!  Flex your fundraising muscle to get a ride to the top – virtual climbers must raise at least $1,500 to take the elevator instead of climbing to the 61st Floor.
