The 16th Annual "Aon Step Up For Kids" stair climb brought out about 2,000 participants, who are racing up 80 flights of stairs at the Aon Center to help sick kids.
ABC7 was a sponsor, and ABC7's John Garcia was among the racers. He spoke with Rob Feldgreber, founder of Step Up and President of K.I.D.D.S for Kids (Kindness Is Doing Something Special for Kids), during our ABC7 News Sunday Morning.
The Step Up for Kids event was created in 1997 by K.I.D.S.S. for Kids, an affiliated fundraising organization of the hospital. The stair climb will benefit the kids and families served by Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago.
