The event, appropriately called Step Up, challenged climbers to run the course up to three laps, or 111 stories total, of Virginia’s tallest building (508 feet).

All of the proceeds go to The Up Center and support programs such as youth mentoring, job training, summer camp for children with disabilities, family counseling, and more.

The Up Center is the region’s oldest and largest nonprofit family services organization with offices throughout Hampton Roads that helps more than 10,000 people each year (95% live at or below 200% of poverty) to protect children, strengthen families, empower people in crisis, and maximize independence for people with disabilities
