StepUp is a 574-Step women’s tower climb to help others achieve the dream of motherhood.
The StepUp Tower Run yielded an incredible turnout, with dozens of Chicago women showing a tremendous outpouring of support to those struggling to create a family. The sense of achdus was palpable, as the community came together to raise funds for fertility treatments, in the hopes that there will be more mothers celebrating Mother’s Day next year.
As the perfect follow-up to the climb, an exclusive climbers after-party was set up with a juice bar, photo booth, snacks, and exciting giveaways. The participants laughed, talked, and compared experiences, creating the perfect end to a perfect day.
