Climb For Kids 2017
May 7 ● One International Place


Children's mental health matters.
The Climb for Kids stairclimb is a fundraiser for Wediko Children's Services. Register to walk, run, or race 46 stories up International Place and you're committing to kids in need. Those struggling with ADHD, depression, autism spectrum disorder, anxiety, trauma, and countless other challenges deserve a fighting chance; help us help them fight.

You can register as an individual or start a team. Invite colleagues, friends, and family to join you. Never been? It's like a local 5k, but indoors and with a beautiful view at the end. There are water stops, timing, and a post-race celebration.

This is a very family friendly event. In fact, we want more families to climb. Don't worry, kids love it and are not intimidated by the stairs! We have a special Family registration/fundraising rate. Kids can join the Kid Climbers division and beat their parent(s) up the stairs.

Thank you to our sponsors, including The Chiofaro Company, Blue Hills Bank, Leggat McCall Properties, Marsh & McLennan, Arbella Insurance and our after-party host Broadside Tavern (formerly Barney Fannings).

Registration: $35 (kid and virtual climbers = $25; discount for families of three or more)

Division information:
Weight of the World: So many of the children and families that Wediko serves carry the ‘weight of the world’ on their shoulders and are challenged by multiple stressors each day. Show your support in the Weight of the World Division and wear a weighted backpack as you climb up 46 flights of stairs. The backpack lists stressors that any given Wediko kid may be carrying with them every day, including: ADHD, Parent Absent in Life, Racism, Unemployment, Fear, Mood Disorders

Repetitive Climb: Feeling ambitious? Sign up to climb 46 flights twice!

Kid Climbers Division: Let's get kids helping kids with the Kid Climbers Division. Any child ages 4+ interested in participating is eligible and can either do the full 46 floors or a limited course (although, trust us, they can often do the 46 faster than the adults!)

Virtual Climbers: Climbing isn't for everyone, and we get that! Register as a Virtual Climber and raise funds to support at-risk kids even if you can't join us on May 7 or won't be climbing yourself.

Family rate: Bring the family! Special rate for families of three or more. Use this registration type after successfully registering the first two participants. Fundraising requirement for families of three or more is $300 (although we'll support you to raise even more!)
