Thousands of early-risers ran up the stairs of the AON Center Sunday to raise money for children's charities.

It was the 15th annual Step Up For Kids climb with climbers trying to reach the 80th floor of the skyscraper.

As usual ABC7's John Garcia was one of the more than 2,000 participants huffing and puffing their way up the stairs.

Proceeds from the climb benefit charities affiliated with children's memorial hospital.
