THE STORY:

The stadium stair climb challenge is a unique event and vertical road race where patrons will “Brave the Heights” in honor of our brave military!

Proceeds from the Step Up for the Brave Stadium Stair Climb challenge support  and impact our mission.

Quotes from some of our clients:

I was prepared to fight

I was prepared to be captured

I was prepared to be wounded

I was even prepared to die

BUT

I wasn’t prepared to be homeless, hungry & abandoned
