Event details

Register as an individual or as part of a team to climb more than 2,700 stairs around Falcon Stadium. Not up for the full race? Register for the shorter, untimed, FUN WAVE! Each registered participant is asked to raise a minimum donation amount and all donations collected will benefit the patients and families served by Children’s Colorado in Colorado Springs and Southern Colorado. After the Climb, stay for the free family festival provided by corporate sponsors and community partners with games, activities, food and fun for the whole family to enjoy.
