As if climbing the tallest building in Virginia isn't enough of a reason to donate! Please consider donating to my fundraiser for Step Up for The Up Center 2017. I love my job, the dedicated and caring professionals i work beside, and I love getting the opportunity to meet the children and families The Up Center's vital services help and tell their stories. The Up Center's signature stair climb event, Step Up for The Up Center, gives money directly back to the vital programs and services The Up Center provides to over 10,000 people each year in Hampton Roads. Funds raised for Step Up for The Up Center 2017 will go to The Up Center’s Family Promise Fund. This fund is The Up Center’s Annual Fund dedicated to families and over $ .90 of every dollar goes directly to services helping children and parents in our community. Over the past two years, Step Up for The Up Center has drawn more than 1,000 climbers, spectators and volunteers. Most importantly, thanks to your support, we raised nearly $200,000 to provide critical services to children, families and people with disabilities across Hampton Roads. You can help to make Step Up 2017 a greater success for our community!
