On Monday, October 7th, 2013, hundreds of participants and volunteers came out to take part in the inaugural Gilda’s Stair Climb event, at the Ritz-Carlton, Westchester. Together, individual climbers and teams of families, friends, local businesses and civil servants ascended the tallest building between NYC and Boston to raise critical funds and awareness in support of our mission.
Not unlike the atmosphere here at Gilda’s Club Westchester, the camaraderie and encouragement at this sold out event was palpable. Friends and complete strangers cheered each other on and celebrated each and every climb as a victory! There were so many stories, but the night’s overall theme was support: support for our loved ones, support for each other, and support for anyone impacted by cancer. Here are some highlights:
