Aon Step Up for Kids

For the last two decades, thousands have come together to "step up" for the patients and their families of Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago. Aon Step Up for Kids, which is taking place on January 28, 2018, at 8 a.m., is an annual event where participants climb 80 floors of the Aon Center - the city's third largest skyscraper.

All proceeds from the event go toward K.I.D.S.S for Kids, an affiliated organization of Lurie Children's which has committed to raising $4 million to fund the hospital's Family Services Department. This department provides key services and programs to patients and families including child life specialists, social workers, chaplains, art and music therapy, Skylight TV and dog therapy.

After climbing 1634 steps, there will be a party on the 80th floor for the Mid-America Club Finish Line Celebration. The celebration includes live music by Spakl, massage tables provided by Athletico, and complimentary food and beverages. If you do not want to climb all 80, there are other options such as climbing 40 or for some, taking the elevator to show your support.
