Climb to the Top logo 2016 

Date: Saturday, March 4, 2017 - Register Online
Location: 200 Clarendon Tower, 200 Clarendon St., Boston, MA
Time: 8am-2pm (Event Registration opens at 7am)

Please join us for the National MS Society, Greater New England Chapter’s 7th annual Climb to the Top Boston!  Climb to the Top Boston is a unique stair climb event that attracts over 500 participants who raise funds to help the more than 21,000 people in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont affected by multiple sclerosis.  Participants showcase their commitment to a World Free of MS by climbing more than 1200 steps in New England’s tallest building—the 200 Clarendon Tower.

There are many ways to become involved in the Climb, but it’s more fun with friends!  Create a team and recruit friends, family, neighbors, co-workers or anyone else who is will to accept the challenge of the stairs! 

Want to participate, but want to take your time to the top?  No problem; Climb to the Top Boston offers “General”, “Competitive” and “Firefighter” participant levels.  All individuals regardless of fitness levels are encouraged to participate, so whether you’re a seasoned veteran of Climb, or tackling your first flight, there is something for everyone.  Additionally, Climb is a great way to work towards personal fitness and wellness goals and is similar in distance to running a 5k road race.

We climb for those who can’t.  Multiple Sclerosis is a disease of the central nervous system that has no known cause or cure.  While 61 flights of stairs might seem daunting, it can’t be compared to the challenges faced everyday by those that live with MS.  Your participation in Climb to the Top Boston provides help for today and hope for tomorrow through education, support, advocacy, and research funded by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Greater New England Chapter.

Climb to the Top Boston features:
