THE STORY:

Step Up for the Brave - Stadium Stair Climb is a unique, vertical challenge where participants are encouraged to conquer climbing a target number of stairs in honor of our brave military!  One time around the closed climb course is 1,000 stairs.  Participants have 1.5 hours to complete their individual climb goal.

 

Bring your friends and family to cheer you on…there are fun on-field activities and games like Giant Jenga, Ring Toss, Cornhole and more for all to enjoy.  All ages welcome, 8 years and older to climb.
