Be a part of the change!
Climb4Change is a unique racing event that offers various timed races on the 200-step Challenge Hill at Philip S. Miller Park. Participants ascend 178 feet at least once in any one of the four climb challenges. There is also a non-timed fun run / walk that families can enjoy together on their own anywhere in the park.
Proceeds from this event are used to provide scholarships, purchase adaptive equipment, and provide access to a wide variety of activities for adults and children with cognitive and physical disabilities.
