CHICAGO (WLS) --Facing an 80-story climb up the third tallest building in Chicago, runners are raising money for the Lurie Children's Hospital at the Aon Step Up for Kids stair climb.
The 19th Annual Step Up for Kids was held on Jan. 31. More than 2,500 athletes raced up the Aon Center on 200 East Randolph in Chicago. ABC 7 is a proud media partner.
The event hopes to raise $700,000 to provide support to families coping with children's health issues. The Lurie Children's Hospital cares for more than 173,000 children each year.
