Special Olympics athletes face challenges every day, but that doesn’t stop them from shining both on and off the playing field. Step Up for Special Olympics will give you a taste of what it’s like to face a challenge, even if only for 53 flights of stairs…

Last year the Step Up event raised $25,000 for Special Olympics Philadelphia! Let’s see if we can step it up to another level this year!

NEW THIS YEAR (more details to come): The CrossClimb TEAM Challenge!! Taking CrossFit competition to another level. Stay tuned for more details on how you and your CrossFit friends can win the Ultimate CrossFit Challenge Cup Trophy!

Step Up features six challenges – participants choose one challenge option (click the Challenge icons for more information). Information on our new CrossFit Team Challenge is soon to come!:

StairClimb Test your speed straight up 53 flights of stairs. Participants are chip-timed and eligible for prizes.
FunClimb Tackle the stairs at your own pace. Participants will not be timed and will start the ascent after the StairClimb Challengers. Great option for kids.
Corpoate Challenge Gather your colleagues and participate in the ultimate team building challenge. Climb your way to the top, together!
CrossClimb  As if a 53-story climb is not tough enough, why not tack on a CrossFit workout before making your way up? New this year in addition to the individual Cross Climb workout, there will be the Ultimate Cross Climb Challenge Cup for CrossFit teams!
Picture3 Our BONUS challenge for anyone looking for a little extra stair time…participants will have 1 hour to complete the climb as many times as possible.
