Step Up For Cancer Research!

6:30pm – 8:30pm (staggered start)
150 Greenwich Street, New York, New York

THANK YOU to everyone who participated in Runyon Up at 4 World Trade Center on Thursday, April 3, 2014! We are incredibly grateful for your support – you have helped us raise more than $200,000 for cancer research!

Finish time results are posted here and you can view photos here.


Join us on Thursday, April 3, 2014, for the first charitable stair climb to be held inside the 4 World Trade Center building. Register to climb to the 72nd or 54th Floor (or opt for the virtual climb and take the elevator!) and enjoy the stunning panoramic views of New York City. However you participate, you can celebrate downtown’s revitalization while raising much-needed funds for cancer research.

You can register as an individual or get friends, family members and colleagues together to form a team. 100% of all donations you raise in support of your climb will go to innovative cancer research by today’s best young scientists, funded by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation.

Not only that, but the money you raise could be matched by one of our generous donors, doubling its impact! See how the match works here

Entry Fee: $40
Minimum Fundraising Requirement: $72 (That’s just $1 per floor of the building!)
Minimum Fundraising Requirement Deadline: March 31*
Registration Deadline: March 31 or when capacity is reached

*Please note that if the minimum fundraising requirement is not met by this deadline, participants’ credit cards will be charged $72 or the difference, should a portion of the $72 minimum be raised.

There are three different participation options to choose from – Full Climb, Partial Climb, or Virtual Climb. Please click here for details on each option.

Start times will be staggered. Elite climbers will start first, beginning at 6:30pm. All other climbers will be assigned a start time between 6:40pm and 8:20pm. Start times will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, so don’t delay, register today!

Actual climbers should arrive 30 minutes prior to their assigned start time. Virtual climbers can arrive anytime between 6:30-8:30pm for their elevator ride to the 54th Floor.

All climbers will enter the building from Greenwich Street, and will be required to present government-issued ID at Check-in inside the lobby, where bib numbers will be issued. T-shirts can be picked up on the 54th Floor at the post-climb party. There will be no advance packet pick-up.
