At 1,005 feet, the US Bank Tower is home to the tallest stairwell west of the Mississippi. During the Stair Climb for Los Angeles, 4,000 participants race or walk up 1,664 steps (75 stories) then take the elevator down to Maguire Gardens where a Block Party awaits - complete with food, activities, music, and a beer garden. If sightseeing is more your style, begin and end at the same locations with our brand new Urban Hike option, passing MOCA, The Broad, Disney Concert Hall, The Grand LA, and more along the way.
All of the money raised is invested directly in free and low-cost YMCA community programs: food distribution helping families achieve post-pandemic stability, teen programs cultivating future leaders, youth sports fostering teamwork and resilience, summer camps that fill children with the wonder of new experiences, and much more.
