Chances are you know someone who has been affected by heart disease, America’s leading cause of death in both men and women. More than 1,000 sudden cardiac arrests occur each day in the United States, and nine out of 10 of these happen at home. Unfortunately, only one in three people will survive a sudden cardiac arrest.
ClimbCorps is thrilled to host the first ever stadium climb at Fenway Park to raise funds and awareness for heart disease - America's #1 killer. On June 7, 2014, thousands of climbers will come together at ClimbAmerica! to scale the stairs in Boston's historic Fenway park to have fun, get moving and make a difference in the fight against heart disease. Registration is free and to help make the biggest impact in the fight against heart disease, all climbers are required to raise $200 before or on event day.
