The 21st Annual Aon Step Up for Kids Presented by KPMG

What: Time to kick-off those New Year’s Resolutions—shed holiday pounds, start exercising and spend more time with friends and family—all while giving back! The 21st annual Aon Step Up for Kids, presented by KPMG, returns Sunday, Jan. 28, 2018 to the Aon Center.

Step Up for Kids is organized by K.I.D.S.S. for Kids, an affiliated organization of Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. During the event, participants race to the top of the Aon Center, one of Chicago’s tallest skyscrapers. Steppers can do either a half or full climb of the 80-story, 1,136-foot-tall building. The first “step-off” starts at 8 a.m. with steppers assigned staggered start times up until 12:30 p.m. Individual start times will be provided at packet pick-ups as well as listed on the event website.

Registration starts at $50 with all proceeds benefitting K.I.D.S.S for Kid’s $4 million commitment to the Lurie Children’s Department of Family Services, a division of the hospital that focuses on the mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being of patients and their families. Registration is free for kids under 12. With registration, each participant agrees to a fundraising commitment of $150, registration fee included.

Each participant will receive an exclusive Aon Step Up for Kids T-shirt and will be rewarded when they reach the top with complimentary food, beverages, and live music from Spakl at The Mid-America Club Finish Line Celebration, located on the 80thfloor. Medals will be awarded to the top three female and male finishers.
